President Obama has announced his Executive Action to provide administrative relief to certain individuals without immigration status currently in the United States. Early details indicate that his plan will help long-term undocumented parents of children who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents by giving them authorization to work legally and protecting them from deportation. We will have more official details about the program in the days and weeks ahead. In the meantime you can attend information meetings organized by the Irish Centers in the region (ourselves, Emerald Isle Immigration Center and Aisling Irish Community Center ), addressing the changes in US, Immigration policy, at these venues on these dates.

Be advised that no one is eligible at this time for these benefits announced by the president. The applications process will not start before May 2015. Beware of any scams offering the ability to apply for benefits immediately under this new program.
