U.S. Court rules against immigrant visa eligibility case

WASHINGTON (Agencies / DL) - The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that children expect to receive immigrant visas at the request of families whose immigration status is still pending, will manage a new order from scratch at age 21 years.

The court ruling - issued by 5 votes in favor and 4 against - found that only in specific circumstances the Federal immigration law allows U.S. children maintain the level of progress of their visa applications once they become adults.

The case is linked to a program that allows people who are U.S. citizens or legal residents getting help with their residence in the North American country to relatives living abroad.

People often have to wait years for your visa application is approved and the number of residence permits available each year is limited.

The legal process of the Supreme Court is not related to recent reports of children who were trying to cross the border alone to reach the United States.

The court upheld the interpretation of the law of the federal government, indicating that only the children of permanent residents in the United States were eligible to maintain immigration status upon reaching age 21.

The case was brought by two groups of applicants, including Rosalina Cuellar de Osorio, who in November 2005 was told that his family was first in line to get visas in the United States and moved from El Salvador.

The family was informed at that time that his son Melvin, who had turned 21 a few months ago, and would not be eligible for the visa.

This law isn't being upheld by Obama anyway, almost seems like a waste of SCOTUS time.

True enough.

We are one justice away from 5:4 decisions the other way, every time.

I started voting in 1972 and do not recall politicians winning elections in positions of power until 2000 the likes of Jindal, Cruz, Pence, Walker, Cruz, Lee, Rand Paul, Palin, Kasich etc. as governors or senators. All of these believe in smaller government. Reagan had to deal with democrat congress which explains exploding spending during his 2 terms.

You can’t make a large ship turn on a dime. GOP is transforming slowly but surely, thanks to Tea Party. I am encouraged.

Immigration law? What is that? Sounds so last century.

The Obama Third World Import Company, which is bringing in busloads of diseased aliens don’t need no steenkin’ immigration laws.

I’m encouraged by that also, but it doesn’t help much when the president ignores the law and is a dictator it doesn’t help much.

I spent 30+ years in Chicago area. I am more familiar with how Obama thinks because I have observed the democrats in Chicago longer than most here. I actually lived for a while not many blocks away from where Obama lived, in Hyde Park. It is too bad so many conservatives abstained in 2012 elections because Romney was not a “good” conservative. Even though Willard Romney was my last choice in GOP, I cast my vote against the Obummer in every election.

You mean that it’s too bad the GOP nominated the most fake conservative and most open bald-faced liar of the bunch who was never going to be able to attract enough votes to win.

GOP did not nominate anyone. Various candidates ran on their own choosing and voters in each state chose who they want. I was hoping either Newt or Rick would drop out after SC primary instead of dividing votes and clearing the path for the moderate from MA.
