Ghanaian Lawyer in US asks African immigrants to take advantage of Obama Executive Order

Samira Sulemana
The Law Office of Samira Sulemana has called on undocumented immigrants and their families living in the United States of America that intend to take advantage of President Obama’s recent executive order on immigration to seriously consider using the services of an immigration attorney.

Samira Sulemana, who is an Attorney at Law, said “hiring an attorney can make all the difference between being approved for your visa or being deported”. The US based lawyer says the Obama executive order will protect a lot of undocumented persons living in the USA illegally from the threat of deportation, as well as give them the opportunity to stop living in the shadows.
