Hello everyone, my name is Patricia Barbee i’m the Managing Immigration Attorney for Bailey & Galyen in the Dallas Office.
I’m here to talk to you today about some potentially exciting new changes that are going to be coming to the world of immigration law in the coming year.
Many of you may have heard that President Biden has proposed or sent to Congress a bill that would offer really generous immigration benefits to basically anyone who was here in the United States on January 1st, 2021. There of course will be requirements like with other programs ex: that you don’t have a serious criminal history. There may be other parameters that we don’t know yet. But let’s say that you do fulfill the requirements of this proposed bill this would allow you to apply for something called Temporary Residence which sounds like it is going to be very similar to the amnesty from the 80’s.
