The President announced his plan for executive action to provide administrative relief to certain individuals without immigration status currently in the United States on November 20, 2014. Early details indicate that his plan will help long term undocumented parents of children who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents by giving them authorization to work legally and protecting them from deportation.
We will have more official details about the program in the days and weeks ahead and in conjunction with community partners at Aisling and New York Irish Center we will be scheduling public meetings the first week of December to provide further information about who will qualify, when to apply and the application requirements. Please call back or access our website www.eiic.org, sign up for EIIC newsletter updates, follow our Facebook page or Twitter stream for further updates and the dates and times of our upcoming informational meetings.
Importantly be advised that no one is eligible at this time and the applications process will not start before May 2015 and beware of any scams offering the ability to apply for benefits immediately under this new program
