|A New Amnesty?
Congressional Reaction To Labor's Proposal
Quick & Easy FAQ Style Recap
Question #1: Please tell us about the proposed
amnesty bill and who might qualify.
Question #2: How would people go about
applying for such an amnesty?
Question #3: I am married to a man from
Mexico who does not have a status. He is here illegally. Should I try to put in an
application for him or should I wait for the amnesty and if so could you please tell me
what to save for proof of him being here as in pay stubs and what else?
Question #4: I'm here in the United
States on a visitor visa. My visa will expire in May 2000. Am I eligible for amnesty? Are
my children eligible to join me in US? They are in my home country at this time.
Question #5: I understand that an amnesty
covers people illegally in the country such as EWI or out of status. However, if enacted,
how will this amnesty affect the people with cases of political asylum pending (forever)
and/or NACARA (sec.203) cases filed with INS?
Question #6: What kind of proof will be
asked for to show one is eligible for amnesty?
Question #7: If a person is Illegal how can
he/she have rent receipts, insurance policies etc.?
Question #8: As far as NACARA is concerned
the Eastern Europeans were left out in the cold. You have mentioned that one of the
immigrants groups covered are the Central American refugees from the 80's. How about the
Eastern Europeans, especially those covered by NACARA. Do you think they may have a chance
to be considered? After all, the law should protect equally all the beneficiaries.
Question #9: Who else is backing up the
Question #10: As I understand it, in 1986
when amnesty was last declared there were a lot of people who had recently arrived in the
states who had given false affidavits and had got amnesty. I also understand that the INS
does not microscopically go through each application and on the whole grants amnesty to
all. Is this true?????
Question #11: Although there are no
guarantees, what do you think, or what is the general feeling amongst attorneys or
government that this amnesty will pass?
Question #12: To speak of another amnesty situation,
is it true that CSS and LULAC will be heard by judges this month? And how would the new
amnesty affect those cases?
