El Tribunal Supremo Emite una Decisión Decepcionante en Estados Unidos v. Texas

Hoy en día, el Tribunal Supremo emitió una decisión 4-4 en los Estados Unidos v. Texas, el caso que cuestiona la Acción Diferida para los Llegados en Infancia amplificada (DACA) y la Acción Diferida para los padres de los estadounidenses y residentes legales permanentes (DAPA). Esto significa que la decisión del Quinto Circuito de mantener su medida preliminar en contra de estas iniciativas se mantendrá. Este fallo no influye en el programa original de DACA puesto en marcha en 2012. La decisión es una gran decepción para las familias inmigrantes y sus defensores. Es malo para las comunidades estadounidenses, los trabajadores y la economía. Vamos a continuar explorando todas las vías legales disponibles y le vamos a insistir al gobierno a hacer lo mismo. Ultimadamente, la nación necesita una solución permanente a nuestro sistema de inmigración antiquado, y debe de venir del Congreso. La lucha va a continuar.

STOP Notario Fraud!

Beware the promises of Notarios! President Obama’s Immigration Reform Will Not Help Everyone.

STOP because while there is a lot of excitement around this announcement, the truth is that not everyone will be eligible. Do not believe notarios and other unauthorized consultants who promise immediate action in order to steal your money.

WAIT until the details are released. The wrong help can harm your chances of becoming a lawful resident or citizen.

TALK to a qualified immigration attorney, ASK questions, and

REPORT notarios who are trying to take advantage of you or your family.

President Obama’s Plans for Immigration

President Obama could announce as soon as next week a series of executive actions that may protect up to five million undocumented immigrants from the threat of deportation, as well as address other areas of immigration. The White House, however, has advised AILA that no final decisions have been made as of yet regarding the substance or timing of the promised executive actions. 

Since he first took office, President Barack Obama has promised to address an immigration system he’s described as “broken,” with more than 11 million people living in the U.S. illegally. He has held off on taking action for six years, amid hopes that Congressional Republicans would pass a comprehensive reform bill.   ….

…Executive action on immigration is nothing new. Since 1956, every U.S. president has granted some kind of temporary relief for some groups of immigrants, according to the American Immigration Council, which tracks immigration policy. In 1987, one year after President Ronald Reagan signed a law that offered a path to citizenship for about 3 million immigrants already in the U.S., his administration also deferred deportation for their children under 18.  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/government-elections-politics/what-will-obama-do-on-immigration/

The Cost of Doing Nothing

“Polls show most Americans believe we need a major overhaul of our immigration laws. Yet we do nothing. Businesses are raided, workers deported, families separated, communities divided, some businesses are forced to close their doors … this is the cost of doing nothing.”

Immigration Reform and the Economy

“Finally, if we are serious about economic growth, it is time to heed the call of business leaders, labor leaders, faith leaders, and law enforcement – and fix our broken immigration system. Republicans and Democrats in the Senate have acted. I know that members of both parties in the House want to do the same. Independent economists say immigration reform will grow our economy and shrink our deficits by almost $1 trillion in the next two decades. And for good reason: when people come here to fulfill their dreams – to study, invent, and contribute to our culture – they make our country a more attractive place for businesses to locate and create jobs for everyone. So let’s get immigration reform done this year.” – President Obama’s State of the Union Address

The President’s inclusion of immigration as a matter of economic necessity reinforces efforts over the last few years to redefine how we think about immigration reform. Immigrants create jobs as consumers and entrepreneurs and spend their wages in U.S. businesses—buying food, clothes, appliances, cars, etc. This builds our economy as businesses respond to the presence of these new workers and consumers by investing in new restaurants, stores, and production facilities. Also immigrants are 30 percent more likely than the native-born to start their own business. The end result is more jobs for more workers.
