What Crimes make a person ineligible for New Senate Immigration Bill?

Any Felony or three misdemeanors makes and alien ineligible for the potential New Immigration Law. Some States considered some minor traffic offenses as misdemeanors; however, the New Senate Bill will not consider those crimes as misdemeanors for eligibility for the New Immigration Bill.

In addition, three misdemeanors need to have occurred on 3 separate dates to make a person in eligible for new immigration bill. Finally, there is a Humanitarian Waiver for three or more misdemeanors for humanitarian reason or family unity. Obviously, if the Bill becomes Law, there will be more information in the future of how to apply for the waiver. The actual language of the Bill is below:

§245B(b)(3)(A)(i): Criminal Bars. Any felony (other than state or local status-based or immigration offenses): Aggravated felony under INA §101(a)(43); Three or more misdemeanors (other than minor traffic offenses or state/local status based or immigration offenses) where conviction occurred on different dates. May be waived for humanitarian purposes to ensure family unity, or if otherwise in the public interest. 245B(b)(3)(B):Waiver. Provides for a waiver of the three or more misdemeanor ineligibility ground for humanitarian purposes to ensure family unity, or if otherwise in the public interest.
