New Immigration Reforms Go Into Effect Today
Washington Post - 08/15/2012
Today marks the first day where President Obama's immigration reform allowing undocumented immigrants to stay in the US for work or go to school if they came to the states before age 16 is officially in affect. To qualify individuals must have a clean criminal record and must have a high school diploma or served in the military. Undocumented immigrants can also stay if they have their high school diploma and are pursuing a higher degree, the online applications became active on Tuesday.
