With the President’s recent executive actions on immigration reform, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will be implementing a variety of changes over the coming months. The USCIS has a variety of great resources for individuals looking for more information on immigration reform, and provides much of that information on its website. With that being said, the information can be complicated at times, which is why the attorneys of Peek & Toland are more than happy to assist individuals with whatever questions they may have regarding their particular immigration situation.
As a convenience to our readers, we’ll be writing a blog series that touches on some of the major initiatives being carried out by the USCIS. At play are a variety of changes to immigration policy, including those that pertain to the following scenarios:
• Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program
• Deferred action for parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents (DAPA)
• Provisional waivers of unlawful presence
• Modernize, improve and clarify immigrant and nonimmigrant programs to grow our economy and create jobs
• Promote the naturalization process
While the USCIS is the authority on all matters pertaining to immigration reform, our law firm plans to keep this website as up-to-date as possible with the most recent immigration developments and how they impact those around us. Specifically as it pertains to the above mentioned initiatives, we’ll be talking about WHO is eligible, WHAT the initiative actually does, WHEN requests towards the initiative can be made, and HOW to make those requests.
