Hey, everybody. It’s Jim. It’s Friday, January 22nd, a great day. Joe Biden has paused all deportations for 100 days, and there will be no deportations for the next 100 days while the Department of Homeland Security works out how it wants to approach the dismantling of the Trump deportation machine. Of course, deportations will start back up after that, but it’s an interesting time and it’s a great day.
I am in San Diego, and today is my first USCIS interview at the San Diego Field Office since we opened our office. I am actually at the office right now getting ready to meet with our new employee. Her name is Rachel, and she’s going to be starting next week. So we’re really excited to have her, and I’m really excited to visit the USCIS office here. It’s a great day for us, something we’ve been working on for about a year, year and a half, and it’s finally come to fruition.
So really excited that the San Diego office is now open, that we are operational. I have to go to Best Buy and get some computers and things, but we are up and running. So that is pretty exciting. Please share the word if you are in the Southern California area. We’d really appreciate some referrals if you feel like we give good value.
One thing I wanted to point out is my good friend, Matt Hoppock, who is a immigration lawyer in Kansas City, has pointed out that lawyers are already advertising for “Biden amnesty.” There’s no such thing as we sit here today as Biden amnesty. Actually, we’ve been getting calls about Biden amnesty. There may be a change in the law that would allow people who are undocumented to come out of the shadows and to get on a path towards citizenship; but we are a long, long, long way away from that. So don’t give your money to any notarios, don’t give your money to any lawyers. There’s nothing to be done yet. You have to wait and see if this bill makes its way through Congress.
On this auspicious day when we are fully here in San Diego … Also, of course, still in St. Louis. But when I’m here in San Diego and Joe Biden has stopped deportations for a hundred days and there’s legislation coming down the road to give people a pathway to citizenship. That’s an exciting time, but don’t get taken advantage of. Don’t give your money to anybody just yet. If anybody’s promising you that you’re going to be eligible for this, they don’t know what in the hell they’re talking about because it hasn’t even been submitted to Congress yet, hasn’t even been offered in the House or the Senate.

Thanks a lot. Again, please spread the word. Really glad to be here. I hung out at the beach yesterday. It was a great day. So here we are. Thanks, everybody. Thanks for all your love and support. See you.
