President Obama Fixes Immigration

Is it true that President Obama passed an executive immigration action? Yes, it is! This new executive order addresses several problems our country has faced. There are four main components to the new action:

  • Crack down on border security
  • Deport felons, not families
  • Increase accountability so more than 4 million undocumented immigrants have the opportunity to play by the rules
  • Streamline legal immigration to boost our economy and promote naturalization

The rules and regulations pertaining to this executive action are complex. Find out whether you are eligible or not, call us today for a free consultation at (206) 623-0118.
