You May be Able to Benefit from Obama’s Executive Action on Immigration - Get a Work Permit and Avoid Deportation Major changes to the U.S. immigration system, announced by President Obama in November 2014, will go into effect soon - the nation’s lead immigration agency, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will begin accepting applications in early 2015 for two programs that could shield over 5 million undocumented people from deportation for at least three years, and provide them work permits for that period.  Note that these changes are not yet in effect.  A Heartland Immigration attorney can tell you whether you are likely to qualify for a grant of “deferred action” under either of these immigration programs, and if so, help you apply.  For help, call us today at:  1-855-USA-IMMIGRATE (1-855-872-4664) Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) The DAPA program will benefit the undocumented parents of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents (people who have a USA green card), as long as they (the parent(s)): (i) have been living in the United States since January 1, 2010; (ii) show that their child who is either a green card holder or American citizen was born on or before November 20, 2014; and (iii) do not have a serious criminal history or anything else in their past that would make the immigration authorities think the person is a security risk. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) DACA already exists - it shields certain people brought to the USA when they were young from deportation for two years and affords them a work permit for that time (it is a variation of the often-hyped DREAM Act) - but will now be expanded.  The revised program will give those benefits - protection from being deported and a work permit - to more people, doing away with the age limit (until the new rules go into effect, one can only get DACA protection if they were born on or after June 15, 1981), and changing the start-date for required continuous residency from June 15, 2007, to January 1, 2010.  Moreover, under the new rules, the term of protection from deportation and the work permit validity period will both be three years, instead of the two years that DACA provides at the moment.  Applicants must meet other criteria already existing for the DACA program. A lawyer from Heartland Immigration will be happy to review your situation and advise as to whether you may benefit from deferred action under DACA or DAPA, and if so to help you submit the required application and supporting documentation to USCIS.  Call  1-855-USA-IMMIGRATE (1-855-872-4664)

Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Check back frequently for updates on the bill pending in Congress that would, if passed, dramatically alter the US immigration law landscape. The proposal would, among other things:
  • Create a path to a US green card and ulatimately US citizenship for many undocumented persons living in the United States through what is called the registered provisional immigrant program
  • Afford an immigrant visa based on "merit" - the Merit Visa would lead to a green card for people who score a certain amount of "points" based on things such as education, length of residence in the US and other factors
  • Expand theH-1B business visa program
  • Create a new class of visas for workers, called, appropriately, the W Visa
  • Allow a green card holder to sponsor their spouses and children for a green card without a long waiting period
