Thread: Senator Dianne Feinstein to Introduce Orange Card Program Amendment

  1. #1
    Senator Dianne Feinstein to Introduce Orange Card Program Amendment

    Prepared on May 19, 2006

    What is the Orange Card program?

    The Feinstein Orange Card amendment replaces the three-tiered treatment of undocumented immigrants in S. 2611 (the bill now being considered by the senate) with one simple process that applies to undocumented immigrants who lived in the U.S. on 1/1/06 and meet certain other requirements.

    Requirements for Orange Card

    The requirements to get an Orange Card are as follows:

    Undocumented on 1/1/06
    Physically present in the U.S. on or before 1/1/06
    If over 18, employed or in school on 1/1/06
    Paid taxes
    Speak English
    Have an understanding of American Civics
    Pass criminal and security background checks
    Registered for the selective service if required
    Pay $2,000 fine
    The spouse and children of Orange Card holders may also qualify.

    Requirements during waiting period

    Orange Card holders may become lawful permanent residents when all current applicants for green cards have received them (estimated to be 6 years), or eight years after the bill becomes law, whichever is earlier.

    Orange Card holders must check in each year with the government and show that they continue to meet all of the requirements listed above.

    Requirements for permanent Green Card

    After the 6-8 year waiting period, Orange Card holders may qualify for a permanent green card, if they meet the following requirements:

    Continue to meet all of the requirements to get an Orange Card
    If over 18, worked or attended school for at least 6 years
    What are the advantages of the Orange Card program?

    One simple process to legalize qualifying undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. before 1/1/06.
    Does not leave out millions of undocumented immigrants who live in the U.S. and contribute to the economy, as does the current version of S. 2611
    Treats all family members equally
    Much easier to administer, so less fraud and fewer problems
    For 2-5 year immigrants:
    No requirement to leave the U.S. and come back
    No guestworker requirement
    No waiver of right to appeal
    Same waiting period as others
    If you believe this amendment is an improvement on the bill as written, Monday is the day to call your Senator and say so. (Capitol switchboard: 202-224-3121.) If not, tell me why not. This is a hugely important issue, and I hope everyone will let fly.
