A New Wave of Waivers
"We may not overcome, but we will overwhelm"
New York Times -- January 6   
Easier Route to Green Card to Be Proposed for Some
~~~ /// ~~~
    Obama administration officials announced on Friday that they will propose a fix to a notorious snag in immigration law that will spare hundreds of thousands of American citizens from prolonged separations from immigrant spouses and children.
    The change that immigration officials are offering would benefit United States citizens who are married to or have children who are illegal immigrants. It would correct a bureaucratic Catch-22 that those Americans now confront when their spouses or children apply to become legal permanent residents.
    Although the tweak that officials of the Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services are proposing appears small, immigration lawyers and advocates for immigrants say it will make a great difference for countless Americans. Thousands will no longer be separated from loved ones, they said, and the change could encourage Americans to come forward to apply to bring illegal immigrant family members into the legal system. [...]
    "This will open up a huge door to bring a large number of people into the light," said Charles Kuck, an immigration lawyer in Atlanta who is a former president of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. "There are hundreds of thousands of people who came to the United States illegally who are married to U.S. citizens who have not taken advantage of the waiver that is currently available. This changes their lives."

    How many people from Mexico are U.S. citizens and have children who are in the country illegally? Very few. How many illegal aliens from Mexico will now marry a U.S. citizen to get this waiver. Very many. Obama strikes another blow for Mexico.
