  • Down with Israel

    Immigration officials Monday encouraged tens of thousands of immigrants in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston, who are eligible for U.S. permanent residency under legislation passed in 2000, to file their applications before the June 4 deadline.

    Under the Legal Immigration and Family Equity (LIFE) Act passed in 2000, more than 200,000 immigrants whose legal status in the United States has been in limbo for some 20 years are eligible for permanent residency, according to Immigration and Naturalization Service estimates. So far, only about a quarter "” or 55,000 people "” have applied.

    Officials believe that about two-thirds of those eligible live in the New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston metropolitan areas.

    "This public outreach campaign provides a golden opportunity for eligible individuals," said Michael Garcia, INS Acting Commissioner. "Our message is: Don't be left out."

    INS officials say that many of those eligible are Mexican immigrants. In the New York City metropolitan area, there are also a number of Central Americans who qualify for permanent residency under the LIFE Act.

    To qualify, immigrants must have entered the United States before January 1982 and must have lived continuously here through May 4, 1988. Immigrants must also be part of one of three class action lawsuits: Catholic Social Services, Inc. (CSS) vs. Meese, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) vs. INS, or Zambrano vs. INS.

    The lawsuits stem from a 1986 amnesty program in which immigrants qualified for permanent residency were discouraged from applying or had their applications incorrectly denied.
