The Obama administration is considering expanding the Deferred Action program to a larger population of undocumented immigrants in the U.S
Atlanta, Georgia. (PRWEB) November 14, 2014
Almost everyone agrees that the current immigration law does not work, and that the U.S. immigration laws and systems are broken.
“Something needs to be done to improve the situation of over 1 million legal immigrants to this country and millions of families with undocumented immigrants who are now struggling to survive and stay together in this country,” said Karen Weinstock, immigration lawyer in Atlanta and managing attorney of Weinstock Immigration Lawyers, which has recently been selected as one of the Best Law Firms in Immigration in Atlanta, Georgia for 2015. Published by Best Lawyers®, is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession, and a partner of U.S. News & World Report.
“It is not possible to continue with the uncertainty and ambiguity about inactions in immigration reform when the present and future of over ten million people are at stake,” said the immigration attorney in Atlanta.
The midterm elections held last week brought sweeping wins for the Republicans, especially in the deep South and now Republicans control both houses of Congress.
“In light of the midterm results, and Congressional past inaction the President should now take serious executive action to deliver immigration relief to the millions of people in need,” commented the immigration lawyer in Georgia. Senator Mitch McConnell and Representative John Boehner have warned the President that executive action would destroy any chance of future legislation in immigration. “Since nothing was done in the past and Republicans have pretty much killed all the immigration proposals in the last 6 years, there is nothing that they would do anyway to harm the situation so the President should act now,” added the immigration attorney in Atlanta, GA.
The Obama administration is considering expanding the Deferred Action program to a larger population of undocumented immigrants in the U.S., which includes relief from deportation and work authorization based on their length of time in the U.S. and family ties as well as expanding DACA to young adults who entered as children to those older than age 30 in order to make more people eligible for this program.
“This is President Obama’s opportunity to enter into the history books to be remembered as compassionate toward disadvantaged immigrants, and doing something despite Congressional inaction”, said Karen Weinstock, Atlanta immigration lawyer. “The President has a unique opportunity to also help many legal immigrants in this country who are waiting a long time for their visas, as well as businesses so it can be a win-win solution”, concluded the immigration attorney in Georgia.
