If you missed all of the details, you’re not alone. It was a comprehensive executive order (in fact, it was one of the most thorough of the 198 executive orders Obama has signed since the beginning of his presidency), and most news stations only covered snippets of it.
What Does Obama’s Executive Order Do for Immigrants?
The multi-faceted executive order has left some immigrants very relieved—some of whom did not follow the legal avenues for immigration to the U.S.—because it includes verbiage that’s designed to keep families together.
- Allows undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents who currently live here to stay for at least five years. It also opens the door for many of them to receive work permits.
- Expands the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to include immigrants who are over age 30 to qualify.
We already know that comprehensive immigration reform would benefit our economy, and people on both sides of the political aisle know that.
- Attorney Tedia Gamino
In late November of last year, President Obama signed an executive order that offers temporary “legal” status to millions of immigrants and helps lift the veil of fear of deportation, at least temporarily.
