Immigration Reform!

Asked over 1 year ago - San Jose, CA

I heard that the new immigration reform bill clause "eliminates the sponsorship of sibling category of U.S.Citizens"......is there any proposal regarding the change in sponsorship of parents of U.S.Citizens too or Will they be considered the same "Immediate relatives" of U.S.Citizens?

    Answered . While I am still reading and reviewing the new bill, you should remember that a bill is nothing more than a proposal. The bill may not get passed, or may be amended before getting passed. You should also note that the House is going to be presenting its own version of an immigration reform bill, which may very well be different from the one presented in the Senate.

    What this means is simply this: don't get worked up about the provisions of a bill until there is a settled version. Only once the bill has been fully debated and considered, and there is a "final" version, will we truly know the provisions.

    This answer is of a general nature and should not be relied upon as final, nor is it intended as legal advice. A... more

    Answered . A current immigration proposal in Congress eliminates the granting of sponsorship visas to relatives of those in the US - the idea being that simply being related to someone already here is no justification for granting residency to someone else.
