If someone came "legally" but overstayed their visa and is out of status now....will he/she be able to apply for the new "Registered Provisional Immigrant Status" as proposed by the gang of 8 today?
Yes, this is the purpose of the Immigration Reform, i.e. to provide a path for legalization of the undocumented aliens that are present in the US and that will meet certain proscribed eligibility criteria. However, you must wait until this bill becomes a law, and if and when it does, I highly recommend that you seek experienced immigration lawyer for assistance.
