Thanks to a new policy recently issued by the Obama Administration, undocumented immigrants who are closely related to active duty military personnel and veterans will now be getting a much needed immigration reprieve. This reprieve will allow these individuals to stay in the United States while their loved ones are serving in the military.
It does not matter whether the military members' relatives entered the U.S. illegally or remained in the country after his or her visa expired. The purpose of this policy is to help put soldiers' minds at ease and alleviate any worries that their relatives will be deported while they are deployed.
If you are an active member of the military, a National Guard reservist, or a veteran of the U.S. military and you have a spouse, child or parent who is in the country illegally, he or she is now eligible for a "parole in place." Immigration laws generally require an immigrant to leave the country to obtain a new visa or green card. Individuals who qualify through this new policy will be able to maintain their residency while applying for and awaiting their visas and green cards.
