Obama's executive actions: what you need to know now

This week, President Obama announced changes that will benefit millions of immigrants in the coming months.  ICS will update our News and Facebook pages with more information as it is released.  Here is what you need to know now.

Who will the new programs benefit?
          The president's actions will benefit some parents of U.S. citizens and legal residents
          Some individuals who came to the U.S. as children

Can I apply now?
          No.  USCIS (Immigration) will publish the application forms for the new programs in Spring or Summer, 2015.  

**Beware of fraud** Don’t believe notarios or anyone who says they can sign you up for a program now.  These individuals are not licensed to practice law and you should only get help from an attorney or BIA Accredited Representative.
