  • Dec 30 - Roll out of Immigration Plan

    Comment: Roll out of Immigration Plan
    LA Times provides its take on how it expects the President's immigration plan will roll out, including its own FAQs about the plan.

    The new year will see those policies coming into effect, potentially creating dramatic changes for those who are in the U.S. illegally. Also ahead in 2015 are important shifts in how agents will enforce immigration laws to focus more on deporting people with lengthy or violent criminal records and less on people whose only crimes are immigration offenses. The new approach will end the dragnet system that enlisted police in blowing the whistle on immigrants.
    Much of how the President's immigration plan will be implemented remain to be announced, and perhaps even decided. Stay tuned to Immigration Daily for all the latest developments in immigration law. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at editor@ilw.com
