IMMIGRATION ALERT: CHANGES BY EXECUTIVE ACTION

Posted in: News, Uncategorized- Nov 24, 2014

On November 20, 2014, President Obama, announced changes to our immigration system, which he intends to implement in the next 6 months. Included in the far-ranging plan are some key items:
• Deferred Action for the parents of U.S. citizen and lawful permanent resident children who fit the eligibility requirements.
• Expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to remove the age cap and move the continuous presence date up to January 1, 2010. DACA will now be granted for 3 years (including those with pending renewal applications).
• Allowing spouses and children of lawful permanent residents to apply for unlawful presence waivers from within the U.S. and ensuring appropriate standards for adjudicating those waivers.
• Enabling families of individuals trying to enlist in the armed forces to utilize parole in place to ensure legal status.
If you have questions regarding your immigration situation, please call our office and schedule a consultation with our immigration partner, Christine Mastin.
