    Same-Sex Couples Flood Immigration Offices For Green Cards By Alana Semuels June 29, 2013 Kori Kirkbride didn't get that immediate feeling of joy and relief when she heard the Supreme Court had struck down the Defense of Marriage Act. Instead, it hit after she talked to her attorney, and found out that the court's decision will allow her Polish wife, Kasia Kurzatkowska, to apply for a green card, putting an end to a heart-wrenching seven years in which the two have been periodically separated by immigration laws. "When we sat with our attorney, it became real," "Waiting for this decision...

    The Obama administration on Friday proposed new hardship rules that would make it easier for illegal immigrants to apply for legal status and stay in the country if they have a spouse or parent already living here legally. Immigrant-rights groups called the move a “tremendous” victory while those who favor a crackdown on illegal immigration said it is another step in what they describe as administrative amnesty. Homeland Security officials, who announced the change in the Federal Register, said the change only applies when an illegal immigrant has a family member living in the U.S. legally and who would be...

    Reporting from Washington— The Obama administration will announce Friday a proposed new regulation that would allow certain undocumented immigrants to remain in America while applying for legal status -- a step aimed at keeping families intact and one that may also shore up the president's support with Latino voters. As it stands, people living in the U.S. illegally who leave the country to apply for a green card face years of separation from family members. Depending on how long they've lived in America, once they leave they are barred from returning for up to 10 years.

    Higher-ups within U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services are pressuring rank-and-file officers to rubber-stamp immigrants’ visa applications, sometimes against the officers’ will, according to a Homeland Security report and internal documents exclusively obtained by The Daily. A 40-page report, drafted by the Office of Inspector General in September but not publicly released, details the immense pressure immigration service officers are under to approve visa applications quickly, sometimes while overlooking concerns about fraud, eligibility or security. One-quarter of the 254 officers surveyed said they have been pressured to approve questionable cases, sometimes “against their will.” The report does not call out any...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration plans a rule change to help reduce the time illegal immigrant spouses and children are separated from citizen relatives while they try to win legal status in the United States, a senior administration official said Thursday. Currently, illegal immigrants must leave the country before they can ask the government to waive a three- to 10-year ban on legally coming back to the U.S. The length of the ban depends on how long they have lived in the U.S. without permission. The official said the new rule would let children and spouses of citizens ask...

    End the Immigration LotteryIn an era of global conflict and economic difficulties, it makes no sense to choose new Americans based on dumb luck. Last week, the DREAM Act failed. DREAM is the cutesy acronym for “Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors.” Had Congress, in its lame-duck session, passed the bill, young people in the U.S. illegally would have been able to acquire citizenship just by spending a couple of years in college. President Obama called the vote to block the DREAM Act “incredibly disappointing.” He had pushed for the law, his spokesmen said, because it was an “education...

    Once a symbol of security in uncertain times, the US passport has lost its appeal for an increasing number of people in Asia and across the globe, who are giving up their citizenship in record numbers. For those in Hong Kong, the combination of relative political stability, growing regional economic opportunity, and increasingly complex and costly tax requirements are driving people to give up the safety net of US citizenship. In the last quarter of 2009, 502 people relinquished their citizenship or long-term permanent residency status in the United States, a nearly eight-fold increase compared with the last quarter in...

    More than half of new California immigrants who are permanent legal residents lived in the state illegally before getting green cards, according to an analysis released Wednesday by the Public Policy Institute of California. The study suggests that the conventional notion of a legal immigrant as a brand-new arrival who has waited in a home country to get a green card is not the norm. "The idea (is) you sit at home, you wait, you get the green card," said research fellow Laura Hill. "That's certainly an experience for immigrants, but it's not the most common." Of green card holders...

    Immigration lawyers raised unusually irate protests yesterday after the State Department and the immigration service abruptly withdrew tens of thousands of job-based visas they had offered last month to foreign professionals hoping to become permanent residents in the United States. The outcry was provoked by a terse announcement on Monday in which the State Department said it would not grant any more visas for the 2007 fiscal year to foreigners applying to become permanent residents based on their job skills. That notice reversed one the department had issued on June 13 announcing a two-month window starting July 2 for aspiring,...

John Nevarez, 55, of Manhattan, was sentenced after state Supreme Court Justice Edward McLaughlin refused to let him withdraw his prior guilty plea. Last month, Nevarez pleaded guilty to third-degree grand larceny for the immigration fraud. Nevarez, who worked out of an East Harlem basement, used a fake badge and identification to convince immigrants he was a federal agent who...

Ninety-eight Caltrans employees – 75 of them engineers – are currently on H-1B work visas that last six years at a maximum. These engineers will be forced to leave Caltrans unless the...

    Applying for citizenship, a green card or a work permit now costs more. Fees for naturalization, permanent residence, employment authorization documents and all immigration benefits increased last week -- on the average about $10 more than prior rates. The reason: inflation, according to immigration authorities. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said that fees for about 36 different immigration applications and petitions went up, but applicants unable to pay the higher fees can request a waiver. Exemptions will be granted, however, on a case-by-case basis. According to a new fee schedule, an application for naturalization now costs $330 instead of $320,...
