"President Obama to announce executive action on immigration Thursday"

From the Washington Post:

President Obama will announce Thursday that he will use his executive authority to expand temporary protections to millions of undocumented immigrants, according to several individuals who have been briefed on the decision. Obama will travel to Las Vegas on the heels of that announcement to rally support for his initiative on Friday.

Congress will receive official details on the move Thursday, according to a senior Democratic Party official.

Even before final confirmation of the president’s plans, outside advocates began readying events to promote the administration’s immigration policy.

"President's expected order on immigration draws hope, objections on LI"

Newsday reports:

Many Long Island immigrants and advocates are placing hope in President Barack Obama's promise "to fix as much of our immigration system" as he can through an executive order that could shield from deportation many living in the country illegally.

The article features comments from a Make the Road New York member:

A 40-year-old Mexican immigrant in Farmingville, who is a member of the advocacy group Make the Road New York but asked that her name be withheld, said her and her husband's sons, ages 8 and 12, and daughter, 14, were born on Long Island and live with that anxiety.

"The children ask us why don't we go to other places, to visit family or travel, and we tell them it's because we don't have papers," the woman said in Spanish. "I would like for that to end, for their sake."

5 Cosas ahora para prepararte para el decreto presidencial sobre la política migratoria

Escrito por United We Dream:

En el 2012 nuestro movimiento presionó al Presidente Obama para lograr la Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia (DACA por sus siglas en inglés), política que proporcionó a los jóvenes ‘sin papeles’ permisos de trabajo y un amparo contra la deportación. Se trata del mayor triunfo del movimiento por los derechos de los inmigrantes desde el año 1986. Pero nos quedaba claro que todavía había mucho trabajo por hacer. Nuestros padres, amigos y seres queridos, sumando millones de personas, quedaban fuera del programa y viven aún bajo la amenaza de la deportación.

Por estas razones hoy seguimos luchando por que el alivio administrativo se amplíe para incluir a millones de inmigrantes indocumentados en los Estados Unidos que merecen la misma oportunidad de vivir sin miedo y hacer sus sueños realidad. Gracias al esfuerzo de movilización de nuestro movimiento, esa oportunidad pronto llegará.

Aunque no se sabe todavía en qué momento tomará acción el presidente, ni a cuantas personas alcanzará el alivio administrativo, es imprescindible que, como comunidad, nos preparemos. Lee los siguientes 5 consejos y ¡prepárate ya!

1. ¡No te dejes engañar!

Aún no se ha establecido ningún proceso para solicitar un alivio, por lo que NADIE, ni siquiera un abogado, debe tomar un caso. NO pagues a ningún asesor migratorio, notario ni a nadie más que haga promesas falsas.

Obama’s Immigration Plan Could Grant Papers to Millions, at Least for Now

From the New York Times: 

Changes to the immigration enforcement system that President Obama is expected to announce as early as this week could offer legal documents to as many as five million immigrants in the country illegally, nearly double the number who received protection from deportation under amnesty legislation in 1986.

Unlike that law, which gave permanent-resident green cards to 2.7 million immigrants, Mr. Obama’s executive actions will not provide any formal, lasting immigration status, much less a pathway to citizenship.

The actions will, however, have a large and, White House officials hope, swift impact on the daily lives of many immigrant families, removing fears that relatives could be separated from one another by deportations. Many immigrants will also receive work permits, which will give them Social Security numbers and allow them to work legally under their own names and travel within the United States, although not abroad. In some states, they will be able to get driver’s licenses and professional certificates.
