Are you an immigrant worried about your business in Texas?

How the new presidential administration will affect Texas immigrants remains to be seen. There has been a lot of mention of various changes in the law since President Donald Trump took office. In fact, some new regulations are set to take effect in July. The situation has many business owners worried, not only about their own legal statuses, but about their financial interests as well. 

Coming to the United States as a foreigner and launching a new business takes great courage, determination and perseverance. Many-an-immigrant (such as yourself, perhaps) believed that this nation could offer a better life, away from abject poverty and imminent violence and danger. Some have already created tremendously successful businesses here. Others are staying afloat, but are worried whether potential law changes and immigrant investigations could tear down everything they've worked so hard to build.

Tips to business success for immigrants

There are several things you can do to make your business strong and convince the U.S. government that you and your business skills are an asset to this nation. A good place to start is by keeping the following ideas in mind:

  • The more customers, the better: If people like your product, they likely will not let your business merely fade away. They'll want to keep coming back for more. A strong customer base allows you show the U.S. government how valuable your role in the nation's economy is.
  • Personal funding always a plus: Working up to having at least a quarter million on hand to invest in a business is another good way to promote your cause for being allowed to remain in the United States.
  • Use credit cards instead of loans: If you had problems getting a business-related loan, you can use credit cards instead. This helps establish a good credit rating as well (provided you make timely payments each month).

Hopefully, some type of immigration problem will not thwart your dream of living and working in the United States and building a joyful, successful life here. If you stay updated on existing laws and ask questions to appropriate parties when something arises that causes you concern, you may be able to stay one step ahead of the game.

An attorney with immigration law experience can be a great asset to have on your side. Serving as a personal advocate and guide, an attorney can represent you in any and all court hearings, interviews or situations threatening your status.
