In the current political climate, some immigration attorneys are suggesting that immigrants should not leave the country.
Hassan Shibly, the executive director of Council on American-Islamic Relations’ Florida chapter, spoke to the Huffington Post on the topic.
“We definitely need people to take caution at this point. With Trump, you cannot take any risks. You cannot take any principle of liberty or justice for granted. We cannot let our guard down.”
Nermeen Arastu, a clinical law professor at CUNY School of Law spoke to the outlet as well.
“I don’t want to make people scared for no reason, but I think caution is best right now until we see what that exact language will be. If you’re a not U.S. citizen, don’t leave right now.”
