ICE joins in a motion to reopen removal proceedings in order to allow a Youman, Madeo and Fasano client to pursue provisional waiver

In March, 2013, the Provisional Waiver of Unlawful Presence (Form I-601A) was implemented by USCIS. This was a tremendous step forward for individuals married to U.S. Citizens who were unable to adjust status in the United States - - often due to the fact that they entered without inspection and lacked the old 245-i waiver which would excuse such an entry.

USCIS announces guidelines for the implementation of Executive Action that will offer work permits to millions of undocumented immigrants and expand other relief

Last night the President took the bold step of unilaterally dealing with the "broken immigration system." The political fallout and Republican reaction to this move by the President will surely create a great deal of controversy over the next several months. However, if you are an undocumented immigrant, you must prepare for what is expected to come from the Executive Action, EA. I remind everyone about what the President said last night and what I cautioned in our blog last week: whatever comes from EA is temporary. It does not lead to a green card or citizenship. Only Congressional action through legislation will allow for a permanent status. Here is the basic take away from the President's 15 minute speech last night:

Executive Action on Immigration Reform: The reach and scope of what the President can do unilaterally

Since the midterm elections last week, you cannot open a newspaper, log on to the internet or hear a report on T.V. without a discussion on Executive Action on immigration. The buzz words that were "Comprehensive Immigration Reform" have morphed into "Executive Action."
