Can I get Registered Provisional Immigrant Status?

Asked over 1 year ago - Richmond, VA

I've herd that there is a new law that aloud undocumented immigrants apply for RPI. I have no criminal record. But i don't know if I can apply now. And i don't really understand the difference between a permanent resident status and RPI.
