Most people have many questions about estate planning but never make a move to go see an attorney. Before Theus' free seminar I did not even know their were attorneys that specialized in only estate planning. Thank goodness I attended...as I did not even know what asset protection was, even though I had assets. Most people think a written will is fine and pass away thinking that things will be as they wished/stated. Most times that is not the case. I urge you to go Theus Law Offices for consultation. They are friendly and down to earth with your wishes being #1. I cannot say enough good things about them. Now that I have gone to Theus I rest so much easier knowing that my wishes...are going to be held up...just as I wanted...no doubt about it....Thanks to the Theus family !

The Theus Law Offices’ Family Estate Planning is a must from my perspective. I had recently lost my dad when I decide to attend the in-person Workshop at the time. My dad and I had attended a similar workshop some four (4) years prior but my dad didn’t elect at the time to move forward. I so wished that he (my dad) had done so because now I am helping my mom go through the Succession/Probate steps with a lawyer currently. If you or your loved ones haven’t made this decision with Estate Planning, I would strongly encourage you to attend this web-based workshop/webinar. Graves Theus is a great attorney to go with for this important step in you and your family’s planning for the future in many, many ways!!!

Estate planning is a complicated process, but my wife and I feel it is valuable and necessary. We started by attending an Estate Planning workshop offered by the Theus Law Offices and led by Jim Theus. That was about the wisest decision we have made in some time. We engaged the services of Theus Law Offices and have benefitted enormously from the direct working relationship with Jim Theus. They did not sign us up and then pass us off to a staff member. We worked with Jim Theus personally. When it was time to work with others of the staff, we found them friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Jim Theus is exceptionally competent and patiently answers questions. His due diligence is admirable. We found their fees for estate planning reasonable and fair. You would be wise to consider using the services of Theus Law Offices if you are interested in estate planning. We are grateful for their help and recommend them to you without reservations. Our loved ones will also be the beneficiaries of a comprehensive plan, as are we. Doyle L Bailey

COMPARING DONALD TRUMP AND HILLARY CLINTON’S POSITIONS ON IMMIGRATION


17 August, 2016

COMPARING DONALD TRUMP AND HILLARY CLINTON’S POSITIONS ON IMMIGRATION
Luis first entered into the United States without inspection when he was just twelve years old. Ever since his arrival in 2005, Luis has been hopeful that Congress would pass comprehensive immigration reform allowing individuals like himself a pathway to United States citizenship.  Unfortunately for Luis and millions of others like him, Congress has failed to act. With the presidential elections quickly approaching, Luis wonders if there is any hope for the future.

Build a Wall

Donald Trump’s position on immigration reform should come as no surprise to anyone. His first priority is to build a wall across the southern borders of the United States, and to have Mexico pay for it.  Trump believes that “the cost of building a permanent border wall pales mightily in comparison to what American taxpayers spend every single year on dealing with the fallout of illegal immigration on their communities, schools and unemployment offices.”

In addition to building a wall, Trump seeks to triple the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers in order to enforce the laws that are already in place. A few of Trump’s other proposed reforms consist of the following:

  • End birthright citizenship;
  • Defund sanctuary cities;
  • Increase standards for admission of refugees; and
  • Control the admission of low-earning workers.

 

Unfortunately for Luis, Trump seeks to deport DREAMers (any illegal immigrant who crossed the border before they turned 16 years of and have continuously lived in the United States for five years) like himself. Even though Luis presently lives and works in the United States as a DACA (deferred action for childhood arrivals) recipient without fear of deportation, all of that could vastly change with the election of our next President.

Offer a Path

Hillary Clinton has been a long-time proponent of comprehensive immigration reform (providing a pathway to citizenship for certain individuals who came to the United States illegally as a minor). In addition to passing comprehensive immigration reform, Clinton also seeks to “focus resources on detaining and deporting those individuals who pose a violent threat to public safety, and ensure refugees who seek asylum in the U.S. have a fair chance to tell their stories.”

Conclusion

Sadly for Luis, even if Hillary is elected as president, this nation is still far from fixing its broken immigration laws.  President Obama has made numerous attempts to reform this nation’s immigration system, all to no avail. Presently, individuals like Luis who have no criminal history are allowed to live and work in the United States without fear of deportation, even though a pathway to permanent residency and U.S. citizenship presently does not exist. At the very least, Luis can expect Hillary to keep this policy in place. 

There are still a lot of unknowns about the two candidates and what may transpire in the upcoming years, but at this point the only thing we know about the candidates is what they say.  What we do know for sure is that continuing with the status quo isn’t good for anyone, especially Luis.
