President Obama has passed, through an executive order, a comprehensive immigration reform bill that will give millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States the opportunity to “get right with the law”.
Those affected must meet strict guidelines in order to receive temporary relief from deportation. They must show that they are the parent of a US citizen or an individual who came to the United States before turning sixteen, they must have been in the US for at least five years, they must pass a criminal and security background check, and they must not have committed fraud. As well, applications cannot be submitted until early to mid 2015.
The United States government, in light of these changes, is warning undocumented immigrants to be wary of immigration scams. Always ensure that you are speaking with a licensed immigration expert when seeking advice and guidance.
