What are the new Immigration Laws under the Obama's Administration that allow an undocumented alien in the US to adjust Status?

Asked over 1 year ago - San Antonio, TX

The Obama Administration has recently signed a new Law that will allow undocumented aliens present in the US to seek a Legal Status. The new Law is not yet effective, but will be soon.
Would you be so kind to find some clear detailed information about the new Law and inform the public, please? You know how sensitive and important this matter is!
Thanks for your help and Happy New Year!

    Answered . As of the time of this posting, President Obama has not signed any such law. He has, however, recently stated on national television that introducing a bill for comprehensive immigration reform will take place within the first year of his second term.

The administration will implement new regulations that allow those who will need a waiver of unlawful presence in order to obtain a green card through an immediate relative who is a US citizen to apply for the waiver without first having to leave the US. Once the waiver is approved they still need to leave the US but should be able to return on an immigrant visa provided they otherwise qualify for it.

    Answered . There is no new law yet.

    We understand how important that is to our clients, but when a law is passed, we will all hear about it at the same time.

    For now all we can do is wait.
