President Obama’s Executive Order – How to Apply for Benefits

    President Obama Executive Order – Immigration Reform – Amnesty

    UPDATE:  NBC reports that Obama’s executive order will be designed to prevent deportation and will cover approximately 5 million people. Here are the expected benefits: 

    • 4 million undocumented workers will be able to apply for legal status if they have no criminal record and have been in the US for 5 years
    • 1 million will be able to apply through other programs, including the Dream Act expansion.

    President Obama will be announcing an Executive Order today that will allow some 3 to 5 million undocumented workers to become legal residents of the United States. The Pappas Group’s contacts in Washington will keep us apprised of the new developments related to the Executive Order and we will pass those along to you here.
