Unofficial Immigration Reform?

While immigration reform has yet to pass — and may not any time soon — the Obama Administration is implementing what some call an unofficial amnesty.  While the Administration is ramping up deportations of aliens with serious criminal histories, it’s begun dismissing thousands of removal cases.  The criteria?  If you’ve been here 2 years or more, you have no felony convictions, and no DWIs, you have a decent shot at dismissal.

Nonetheless, immigration lawyers shouldn’t bet on dismissal.  After all, we’re talking policy — not law.  For more on the policy’s application in Texas, read here.  If you need to speak with an immigration lawyer in Dallas, feel free to contact us.
