I am in removal proceedings waiting for my asylum case. Heavy work towards reform might be a possible reform to happen. If that is to happen, does people like me get included in the reform if we have degree or otherwise eligible according to the reform law? I know there are more than few bills being drafted...does any of those bills provide break for people already in the system and facing removal proceedings?
The version of President Obama's bill, which was 'leaked' this weekend, WOULD be able to help you.
But, who knows if it will actually become law.
