Study finds fewer Illegal Mexican Immigrants in U.S.

According to the Orange County Register, the population of Mexicans in the U.S. illegally shrank by about one million from 2007 to 2011 due to fewer job opportunities, heightened border enforcement and a record number of deportations, according to a Pew Hispanic Center analysis of governmental data from both the U.S. and Mexico.  From 2007-2011 the number of Mexicans in the United States illegally dropped from 7 million to 6.1 million.  Fifty eight percent of unauthorized immigrants living in the U.S. are Mexican.  Among the undocumented immigrants who leave the United States, an estimated 5% to 35% have been deported, while the rest opt to go back voluntarily – often taking U.S.-born children with them.  For information regarding Immigration Bonds call Penny Bail Bonds anytime at 714-279-9676 or 1-866-736-6977.  You can also visit us at http://www.pennybailbonds.com

Family Law Attorneys using Social Media for evidence in court

Using social media can have legal implications if you are going through a messy divorce.  Family law attorneys are using social media sites such as Twitter, and Facebook to find a lot of useful  information on cheating, and lying spouses during the divorce proceedings.  Divorce lawyers can get access to your  tweets, status updates, and pins.  Your social media actions may speak louder than you realize.  Social media profiles can reveal your state of mind, proof of communication, proof of time and place, and evidence of your actions.  When using Facebook you can not reasonably expect privacy, therefore you should not post anything you want to keep hidden from the other party involved in your divorce.  To be on the safe side make sure you talk to your attorney regarding the use of social media sites while going through a divorce.
