For many years, Congress had been debating about how to tackle the broken system of immigration in the United States. President Obama had promised to act using his executive powers to tackle immigration reform. This move is expected to anger Republican lawmakers, who say that a unilateral action on immigration could ruin bipartisan cooperation in Congress, and even threaten a government shutdown.
According to the New York Times, Obama’s plans to announce an overhaul of U.S. immigration policy through executive action could shield up to 5 million undocumented immigrants from deportation. Until the actual proposed measures are announced, we do not exactly know who will be benefited from the measure, and what the criteria are to get these benefits.
However, lawyers, immigration reform activists, community groups, churches, schools and many other organizations are getting ready to help the millions of individuals who could possibly benefit from the proposed executive action. If you or your loved ones believe that you will be benefited from the proposed executive action on immigration reform, seek the right kind of help only from reputable immigration attorneys.
