Partial Immigration Reform is still an option Part 1

 

Remember, focus on the Republicans in the House of Representatives. The only person in the House who really understand the intricacies of Immigration Law is Republican Representative Goodlatte. He is a former immigration attorney, and was quoted regarding another option to help illegal aliens if the compressive immigration law does not get passed.

Goodatte stated that there may be an option that “would allow immigrants here illegally to obtain legal work status, and from there, they could use the existing routes to citizenship: marrying a U.S. citizen or getting sponsored by an employer or U.S.

Citizen relative. Such an approach would allow Republicans to deal with millions of people in the U.S. illegally without bestowing a so-called special path to citizenship as the Senate did — a concept that’s become toxic to many in the GOP.”

What he means is that employment based sponsorship is presently barred for any person out of legal status, and marrying a US citizen is not possible if a person has present deportation order or entered without inspection. A law could be crafted that would allow these options available to illegal aliens while they get issued employment authorization. The benefits of this option will be discussed in Part 2.
