Imigration reform

Asked about 1 year ago - Ephrata, PA

I m american citzen and i have a daugther with 29 years old and she is divorced
Do you think that is important apply for her green card immediately?
Because with the imigration reform she is qualified for all the imigration request.
My doubt is: if she apply by me, could it help when the imigration reform comes up? or it doesn't have any influence?
