Hi America R: WOW - immigration and Customs officials today face a ton of issues. However, it depends on which border you get assigned to protect. At airports Customs people are checking people as they enter the Country looking for things being smuggled in. Immigration folk have to deal with people coming to our Country to become a citizen or to go to school or to work. Immigration folks at our Southern Border are now dealing with everything from child care to health issues to housing issues. These are tough jobs. They require a brain and a heart. Immigration lawyers have a tough job. They have to make sure the people seeking to come into our Country are treated fairly and granted entry properly and fairly. Good luck!

Given your hashtags, it appears that you are more interested of the work of an immigration attorney, rather than the work of someone who works for the Customs and Immigration Services (ie the people at the airport who let you come into the country). That part has been answered above.

As an immigration attorney, you are assisting your clients with questions regarding their immigration to the US. That starts with assessing their (unique) situations, suggesting the right path to achieve their goal (apply for a visa, green card, US Naturalization). You are being called if someone is about to be deported, and suggest the best options to avoid these scenarios.

Since the underlying regulations/processes for each of these categories change frequently, you will have to stay on top of that to assist your clients. You will be the one help for your client's against a huge and dominant bureaucracy.
