Yep, President Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano have done it…found a way to help kids under 30 who came to the US before they were 16 and who have been here 5 years. They have done this despite a U.S. Congress that has continually foresaken its responsibility to this country to regulate immigration fairly. The two links below provide an outline of the new program.
Am I Eligible? If you are have been in the US 5 years, are illegal, are under 30, came to the US under 16 years of age, have graduated high school (or GED), are in high school, or are in the military, are not a serious criminal plus a few other requirements, you can obtain temporary papers AND a work card! In other words, you will be temporarially (2 years at first) legal!
