The United Front of Immigrants will hold a press conference, Monday January 9 at Casa Aztlán 1831 S. Racine 11.30 is to discuss the Friday announcement of the Obama Administration to change the draconian procedure to penalize families with separation between 3 to 10 years as a result of the immigration reform of 1996.
The Obama administration Friday announced a common-sense proposal to revise the immigration system, allowing immigrants with U.S. citizen family members who are eligible for waivers of the 3- and 10-year “unlawful presence” bars to file their applications in the United States rather than having to return to their country of birth and stay there for many months while their applications for waivers are processed. This change could benefit many low-income immigrant families, according with Guillermo Gomez from the United Front of Immigrants. Many immigrants in the process of obtaining permanent residency through sponsorship by U.S. citizen spouses or parents will no longer need to undergo prolonged separation from their families, if a proposal by the Obama administration is put into effect.
The united Front for Immigrants considers a positive move of the administration, but is not enough for the Latino and immigrant communities.
