OBAMA IMMIGRATION ACTIONS

President Obama announced a major overhaul of how American Immigration Laws are enforced.  The details will be issued over the next several months. 

Although no applications are yet available, please call to make an appointment so that we can start preparing your applications.   Programs requiring an application will take at least 90 days to implement.

The provisions affecting the most people include: 

Parents of US Citizens & Permanent Residents
 (of any age) who have been continuously present in the US since 1/1/10, and who pass background checks and pay taxes, will be eligible to apply for deferred action, which will permit them to work in the USA and avoid deportation.

Deferred Action Program for Children is Expanded
Eliminates the age cap, and changes the date that continuous presence must have started to 1/1/10.  Employment authorization will be granted for 3 years, not 2 as previously.  As previously, any information filed in such an application will not be used against the person to remove them from the United States.

Persons with Approved Visa Petitions through Employment who are in Status
Will be able to obtain the benefits as if they were able to immediately file for adjustment of status.  

Foreign Entrepreneurs
Certain investors will be able to be paroled into the U.S based on investments in businesses that create jobs.  

Provisional waiver will be expanded 
To include spouses and children of lawful permanent residents; and children of US Citizens. The definition of extreme hardship will be expanded and clarified.

For persons traveling on Advance Parole -
Customs and Border Protection will be given clear instructions that they should honor advance paroles

Backlogs for persons waiting for immigrant visas should be reduced
The President instructed the Department of State to re-evaluate how visa numbers are being used with a view towards optimizing the number of visas issued.

Enforcement Priorities
Many of the existing memos on enforcement priorities and
prosecutorial discretion will be replaced by a new memo that will name three enforcement priorities, which will be operational immediately.

Expedited Removing Serious Criminals 
Convicted felons, people apprehended on the border; convicted of serious or multiple misdemeanors, and very recent entrants (entered after 1/1/14); or after 1/1/14, failed to leave under a removal order or returned after removal.

Ending Secure Communities Program - Where All Criminal Aliens were referred to ICE
Detainers will be discontinued for all except national security cases. Instead of detainers, there will be a request for notification when a law enforcement entity is about to release a convicted criminal.

More details will follow as the programs are revised by the White House and Department of Homeland Security.  We will create a future tab on this page with the latest updates.

Most of the programs above will be implemented over a longer period of time- for example, the Deferred Action Status for parents will probably be implemented over a 6 month time frame.

Labor Certification Advance - Time to File 

The waiting time for an immigrant visa through labor certification- the process of being sponsored by an employer - has been shortened to 2 years.  

Labor Certification is where an employer files a job offer for an individual to be employed - either in a typical business situation - or even as a household worker (nanny, home attendant).
