  • Is the 245(i) Dead?

    Is the 245(i) dead? I heard that they will not be reinstating it. So, what now?
    If you're here illegally and want to be legal but don't want to go back to your own country and be barred for 10 years, what do you do?
    If you have family here(i.e. wife and 2 kids) and a good job, but you are not here legally, what do you do?

    Also, I've heard that 5 states offer driver's licenses to tax id holders. Is this true? Which states?

    Thanks for any feedback you can give me.

      I understood that it's pretty much dead. Rep. Gephardt is trying to grant amnesty to all illegals here now and make it easier for new immigrants to enter legally. That issue is being debated now. It may help you.

        Yes, the 245(i) is long gone and with the terrorism and war with Iraq, no one can justify leniency. Rep. Gephardt is no longer Speaker. Even when he was, all recent such proposals were voted down by the other Senators as Americans protested any amnesty after 9/11.

          A driver's license from any state does not solve the problem of being in the US illegally. You need to rectify that problem first or you could be banned for a long long time. It all depends on how you came to be out of legal status, so you need to tell your details to get your options answered. Did you enter illegally or overstay?

            I posted the question about 245(i) to get answers for a man I know that needs answers.
            He is here after entering illegally to be with his wife and children who were already here on a visa. His wife's parents live here.
            He intended on going back but landed a good job and has been here ever since. Since landing this job, he is VERY much needed and it would put the company in a bind if he left.
            This man worries daily about his presence here and wants to be legal. However, without something such as the 245(i) he will be forced to go back to his country and risk being barred from entering the U.S. for up to 10 years. He doesn't qualify to apply for a visa since he's been here illegally for some time. He worries about being illegal and also about being deported. It would be a major hardship for his family to be without him.
            He is a very good man that has made a mistake and is trying to fix it. Some think that his only option is to stay here and try to get a tax ID number and a driver's license and just remain a tax paying person that is trying his best to fit in.
            Is there any options for him?
