Dream Act and Immigration Legislative Reform
It started with The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, a visionary immigration bill that Congress proposed but did not pass. Then came DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), a mechanism for allowing undocumented children brought to the U.S. to come forward, without fear of deportation.
The Likely Results Of Immigration Reform
- Legalization of persons currently in the U.S.
- A pathway to citizenship
- An end to discrimination
- Border enforcement that is just and secure
- An emphasis on family reunification
- A process for determining the need and allocation of employment visas
Call Murphy & Price Today ∙ Be Ready When Reform Passes
No one denies that our immigration system is badly broken, and that major reform is inevitable and will probably occur soon. When this happens there will be a big rush on the part of undocumented people to become legal, and take their places on the pathway to citizenship.
Our immigration reform consulting and advocacy is nationwide, but most of our clients are in Maryland, Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico and Southern California.
The downside of this is that it will not happen all at once. There are simply too many immigrants now in the U.S. for USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) to address quickly. This means that the pathway to permanent resident or citizen status will be effectively rationed on a first-come, first-served basis.
What If 300,000 Wish To Apply, But The Program Only Allows 10,000?
At Murphy & Price, LLP, of Annapolis, Maryland, we suggest that people interested in obtaining the benefits of immigration law reform — whenever that occurs — have their papers in order and ready to file before the law passes. Inspired by the DREAM Act, our immigration legislative reform attorneys will be happy to explain the requirements and to help you prepare a successful petition for yourself and family members.
Our lawyers are also happy to discuss (DACA) Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. It is a valuable opportunity for young persons to become legal, but it is best to apply through an experienced DACA attorney.
