364-day maximum sentence will reduce immigration consequences of California misdemeanors

A new California law reducing the maximum sentence for misdemeanors from 365 to 364 days will be very important for many foreign nationals facing criminal charges.  The law, SB 1310, takes effect January, 2015.  (Certain California misdemeanors which already carry a maximum sentence of 6 months will be unchanged.)  While a one day reduction may not sound like much, it is very important for immigration purposes.

ICE's reported use of "unaccompanied child" instead of "Unaccompanied Alien Child" a sign of trouble, not respect.

Conservative websites the National Review online have both reported that ICE has allegedly directed officers to stop using the term "Unaccompanied Alien Child" or "UAC" in reference to minors who attempt to cross the border without a parent or guardian, and instead simply refer to them as "unaccompanied children".
