Proposed immigration deal includes citizenship, wall funding

A proposed solution for the 700,000 individuals who immigrated to the United States as children is bundled with a request for border wall funding. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals administrative program formerly allowed individuals who immigrated as children to avoid deportation and to access work permits. Now that the program has ended, some worry about their deportation status, and a proposed solution may allow them to apply for citizenship. New York individuals facing deportation after the end of DACA may be interested to learn more about the proposal. 

Immigrant college student says detainees look like dead bodies

A college classroom in another state was short one student when its spring session recently got underway. That's because instead of being in class he was with approximately 60 other detainees in an immigration detention center. The young man's trouble began when he was riding home from a party with his girlfriend, who missed a turn while she was driving. There may be immigrants in New York facing similar situations.

Family immigration, one of many facets of overhaul

The United States is experiencing a shift in policies regarding people looking to relocate to the country. The current administration has been very active in altering existing guidelines and acting to make changes. A border wall, increased detention facilities and restricting family immigration are major things happening now in American immigration policy. People who have relocated to New York recently may be interested in keeping current with the shifting policies on U.S. immigration. 

Permanent resident status one option on the table for immigrants

U.S. Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen recently spoke out about options for resolution to the immigration issue for DACA recipients. This group of immigrants, which consists of mostly young people, has recently come into the news because of the Trump administration's announcement to end the DACA program. The legal status of these individuals is currently up in the air, but the Homeland Security Secretary remains hopeful that a solution to the problem can be found, including possibly granting permanent resident status. This hopeful outlook could potentially be reassuring to some immigrants in New York.
