How does an average day in Immigration Customs look like?

#immigration #law #research #lawyer #law-school

Thank you comment icon There would be the routine work of checking people's identity and papers as to entering the country but you would also be exposed to the tragedy of others who are crossing the border illegally and are at the mercy of criminals the demand payment to get them into this country. On the flip side, you would also see wonderful people, many of whom are misunderstood, who are only trying to make life better for themselves. I hope that helps. Tom Moyer
