2014 Immigration Reform in NY
Banding Together for a Brighter Future
President Obama's recent address to the United States inspires hope
for immigrants unlike any other action ever has. The past decades have
turned the immigration system into a broken structure, full of skewed
priorities and confused legislatures. The President is striving to change
this, starting today.

were unsure would ever be fulfilled.

What do President Obama's changes mean for immigrants?
In his address, President Obama encouraged immigrants to 'come out
of the shadows' and get right with the law. The new laws that will
be enacted allow immigrants to do so without fear, should they meet the
necessary qualifications. Nearly five million immigrants are being given
the chance to stay in America temporarily without fear of deportation.
Some of the changes we can expect to see include:
- Continue to strengthen border protection and prevent illegal immigration
- Realign deportation priorities by deporting felons instead of families
- Require undocumented immigrants to 'play by the rules'
- Grow the opportunities for skilled immigrant workers
In order for an immigrant to be given the chance to stay in America, they
are required to register, complete a background check, and agree to pay
their taxes. This option is only available for those who have been in
America for more than five years or who have children who are American
citizens or residents.
It is important to note that the new immigration changes do not apply to
anyone who has recently come to America or who may cross the border illegally
in the future. President Obama is doing everything he can to bring this
country back to its roots and he believes it starts with immigration.
According to the President, our country needs a common purpose. It's
time to take responsibility and make amends for our past.
In his own words – do we value families and work to keep them together?
At its core, that is what these immigration changes are about.
