Comprehensive immigration reform means that changes are being made to immigration policies within the United States for the purpose of improving the laws and removing faults within the system.
Currently, changes are being adapted to increase the number of legal immigrants while decreasing the number of illegal immigrants. President Obama has proposed this reform to build an effective system for immigration that will secure our borders and apply penalties to employers who hire undocumented immigrants. For illegal residents, these reforms may include steps to become in compliance with the law in order to earn eligibility for citizenship.
As the country works to improve the immigration system, our Miami immigration attorney remains up to date with changes being proposed and implemented to modify the law. He can give residents of South Florida and those living throughout the U.S. the resources and guidance necessary to achieve legal permanent residence. At Sibirsky Law Firm, P.A., we understand the principles that have been proposed and how they can affect immigration.
Comprehensive immigration reform focuses on immigrants who are presently living within the country. Legal immigrants are given the opportunity to earn citizenship and illegal immigrants are held responsible for their actions before being given the opportunity to pursue naturalization.
Naturalization methods for children brought to the U.S. by their parents in an illegal manner during specified years and at certain ages may also be given a path to citizenship. Employers of undocumented workers are penalized for violating immigration laws. Under the proposed reform, companies will be held accountable for unlawful hiring practices, and employers who desire to uphold the law can legally verify their employees' residency statuses.
Reform to the present immigration plan has been developed to address the issues of undocumented residents within the country. Proposals are being made to improve these laws, and our firm offers the information you need to make sure you comply with the latest revisions to any laws or processes that may affect you.
