Executive Immigration Action Expected as Early as Next Week
According to Fox News, administration officials stated that President Obama is planning to announce his new executive action on immigration as early as next week. A sweeping overhaul of our broken immigration laws through executive action could potentially benefit over five million undocumented immigrants by providing them with deferred deportation and a work permit, much like the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) policy.
If President Obama chooses to apply stricter qualifications for his executive immigration action, his policy could benefit a narrower number of individuals. At this time, it is unknown as to what President Obama’s policy will look like, but if Fox News’s report gives us any guidance on President Obama’s 10-point initiative, it appears deferred action would be extended to more individuals, including parents of US citizens and lawful permanent residents (green card holders), and anyone who entered before the age of 16 and before January 1, 2010 instead of the previous June 15, 2007 cut-off date. Other measures would be announced, but this would be a significant change in immigration enforcement here in the US.
