Little known secrets of fiancé visa and green card interviews from an attorney with 20 years of experience

The Sacramento Bee recently ran an article by Jim Sanders titled: Green light for driver’s licenses.

The writer states that ” Californians in record numbers want to grant driver’s licenses to undocumented immigrants, not charge them extra for college, and offer a path to citizenship, a new Field Poll Shows. ”

“Attitudes are changing fast: This marks the first time a majority of voters have turned thumbs-up on driver’s licenses since he Field Poll began asking the question in 2005.  But voters indicated the welcome mat should extend only to immigrants already living in the state”.

The news was not completely pro immigrant. “A  majority of California voters support increasing the number of federal border agents and imposing stiff penalties on anyone who hires illegal immigrants, the poll found.” “Increasing the number of federal border agents is favored by 65 percent of the voters; imposing stiff penalties on employers of undocumented immigrants, 57 percent; building more border fences, 46 percent; and continuing to have federal agents round up, detain and deport illegal immigrants, 46 percent”.

Despite the numbers above,  overall the poll showed that Californians want relief for long term residents who have entered the United States illegally.

“Nine of every 10 voters support creating a path to citizenship; 76 percent support temporary wrker programs; 60 percent, residency college tuition; and 52 percent, drivers licenses.”

The article goes on to state that: “Offering a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who have lived in California for a number of years, have a job, learned English and paid back taxes is supported accross the board:95 percent of Democrats, 81 percent of Republicans and 92 percent of other voters back the concept….”

It appears, from many different sources, that there will be reforms in immigration law over the next several months (there has already been some reforms which may apply to you). These laws will affect anyone who lives in the U.S. illegally or has loved ones who live in the U.S. illegally. If this is your situation then you should contact a Sacramento immigration attorney now to help you go over your options.

This article is intended to provide you with information about current immigration affairs. You should speak to a competent attorney about your particular case. Please do not listen to friends or co-workers concerning your immigration issues. Rather, please consult with a competent immigration attorney.
