BUFFALO, N.Y. -- It all started when President Donald Trump signed the executive order on immigration.
"We've had the busiest few months we've ever had. It's really been spiraling out of control," said Matthew Borowski, an immigration lawyer with Borowski Law.
"It's been pretty busy. I've been getting a lot of calls," said Siana McLean, senior immigration counsel with Tully Rinckey PLLC.
Western New York immigration attorneys are working to keep up with heavier case loads of people affected by the travel ban and tougher enforcement within the country, and those worried they could be. The roller coaster ride isn't over yet, despite two federal court decisions to keep the temporary restraining order against the ban in place. McLean says the key word there is "temporary."
"It's really more of a pause, but I think it gives some hope in that more people are actually galvanizing and coming together and forcing the government to operate under the rule of law," said McLean.
President Donald Trump said Friday he's considering signing a new immigration order early next week as the original makes its way through the courts.
"Certainly, Trump could try to put forward a more narrowly-tailored travel ban, but I think, at the end of the day, if he tries to focus it on Muslim-majority nations, the statements he made during the campaign are going to come back to bite him," said Borowski.
Borowski says that's because courts take intent into account when making their decisions.
In the meantime, work on current cases will continue as attorneys and clients wait to see what's next.
