White House To Offer Immunity To Certain Immigrants
Submitted by Cheston Catalano
Younger undocumented immigrants who came here with their parent and have obeyed the law will get immunity.
The policy change, described to The Associated Press by two senior administration officials, will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants who have lived in fear of deportation. It also bypasses Congress and partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act, a long-sought but never enacted plan to establish a path toward citizenship for young people who came to the United States illegally but who have attended college or served in the military.
