Immigration Accountability Executive Action Was Announced By President Obama. Are You or Someone You Know a Beneficiary?

After years, President Obama has finally announced his plan for Administrative Relief. It is not an "Executive Decision". It is not an immigration Bill (although it is hoped that it may lead to one). The program will go under the name "Immigration Accountability Executive Action". The

following is a short description of some of the highlights of the President's plan.

Deferred Action Expansion.

This is the program that allows individuals who fit in to a specific category to be deferred from deportation and allowed to work and travel in the US.

1. DACA expansion

Upper age cap will be eliminated and people of any age can apply if they meet the other requirements. The current DACA rules require someone be under the age of 31 on June 5, 2012.

Still must have entered the U.S. before the age of 16 regardless of how old they were in June 2012 or are today.

DACA being expanded to three year increments. This change will apply to all first-time applications as well as all applications for renewal effective November 24, 2014.

Work cards will be valid for three years at a time and USCIS will look at means to extend the two-year renewals to three years. USCIS is also considering extending previously issued two-year work authorization renewals for the new three year period but no decision has yet been made.

Physical presence date advanced to 1/1/2010. Applicants can qualify if they were in the U.S. by that date as opposed to June 15, 2007 under the current DACA rules.

USCIS is advising that they expect these changes to take effect approximately 90 days from November 20, 2014.
