INDIANAPOLIS -- Although many immigrants are worried about what will happen now that Donald Trump is the President-Elect, a local Immigration Attorney says they have nothing to fear at this time.

During his campaign, Trump talked about building a wall and deporting immigrants.

But Immigration Attorney Angela Adams said people need to stay calm.

“Nothing is happening right now. Obviously, there is fear, a tone, and sense of uncertainty. But you can’t just deport 11 million people overnight,” said Adams. “There are constitutional implications; there’s due process of law, immigration judges that only can make a determination on whether someone is removable.”

Adams said legal citizens who are highly skilled and working in America are also concerned about their decision to relocate to the United States.
