We are reaching out to Congressional leaders here in Nevada to assist in their efforts to educate their constituents about this new policy.
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 01, 2014
In a dramatic announcement, President Obama has signaled his intent to provide a pathway to legalization for several million undocumented persons currently living in the United States. The President’s announcement is expected to have a major impact on the lives of at least 5 million undocumented immigrants. The new change in immigration policy will permit undocumented immigrants to apply for deferments from deportation and authorization to work in the United States, according to CNN (“Obama: ‘You can come out of the shadows,’” Nov. 21, 2014)
Commenting upon this new policy, Las Vegas immigration lawyer Paul S. Padda said, “The President’s announcement is a major and historical change in United States immigration policy that will profoundly affect millions.”
According to Padda, sources within the government have indicated that the new policy, being referred to as “Obama Amnesty,” will confer amnesty upon individuals using criteria such longevity in the United States and family ties. With this new policy, Padda stated his law firm, Cohen & Padda, LLP, will be able to help “thousands of clients who will now be able to avail themselves of these new benefits.”
He added, “We are reaching out to Congressional leaders here in Nevada to assist in their efforts to educate their constituents about this new policy.”
Wayne H. Price, an immigration lawyer with Cohen & Padda and former immigration official with the Department of Homeland Security, noted that the policy will likely take some time to implement but that “it would be wise for immigrants to start the process as soon as possible” in order to ensure their “place in line.”
Price added, “At Cohen & Padda, we are poised to provide our immigration clients unparalleled representation in navigating the new policy.”
According to Padda, Nevada has among the highest populations of undocumented immigrations. “With this new policy, millions will now have authorization from the federal government to work legally in the United States without having to fear deportation,” Padda said.
