With news of the prosecutorial discretion in deportation flying, many illegals are flocking to attorneys and notarios. And notarios will make a lof of money from this deal by giving false hopes.
Note: this announcement is preliminary.
First: there is no uniform regulations, for individual Immighration and Customs agents to act yet. This could take years
Second: There is only very preliminary talk about work permit, and work permits may not materialize
Third: Please dont turn yourself in, because in all likelihood you will be deported
Fourth: Notarios are not lawyers in the US, and they will mislead you and take your money.
Fifth: below are a very preliminary list of factors, and if you dont fall uunder many of them, this is not for you. If you entered by your own volition, illegally, and work here, this is not for you.
the person’s length of presence in the United States;
the circumstances of the person’s arrival in the United States, particularly if the alien came to the United States as a young child;
the person’s pursuit of education in the United States, with particular consideration given to those who have graduated from a U.S. high school or have successfully pursued or are pursuing a college or advanced degrees at a legitimate institution;
whether the person, or the person’s immediate relative, has served in the U.S. military, reserves, or national guard;
the person’s criminal history, including arrests, prior convictions, or outstanding arrest warrants;
the person’s ties and contributions to the community, including family relationships;
the person’s age, with particular consideration given to minors and the elderly;
whether the person has a U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse, child, or parent;
whether the person is the primary caretaker of a person with a mental or physical disability, minor, or seriously ill relative;
whether the person or the person’s spouse is pregnant or nursing.
MY ADVICE: Just wait. Dont even go to an attorney now, becasue until the regulations come out, Attorneys will not be able to help either, and will charge for the advice above.
