New Immigration Law Update

New Immigration Law Update

Congress and the White House have been negotiating the terms of a bipartisan immigration reform deal that would provide a pathway to citizenship for the 12 million undocumented aliens currently residing in the United States. According to the Associated Press, “the Senate measure would increase border security, allow more temporary workers to stay and crack down on employers who would hire illegal immigrants.”

Some of the key items of the legislation are likely to require applicants for relief to provide the following:

  1. Background checks
  2. Filing of all back taxes
  3. Payment of fines
  4. Enhanced border security
  5. Prosecution of employer violators
  6. Expanded temporary worker status
