President Obama is making major policy changes to fix the broken immigration system. He wants to create more jobs, issue more visas to save one job: his job!
* On July 22, the House Judiciary Committee approved bill to eliminate green card lottery.
* On August 2, the USCIS released new visa policy to attract and retain foreign workers.
* On August 18, the White House announced illegal immigrants could stay and apply for work permit.
The last announcement was the most surprising and controversial. It angered immigration hard-liners and pleased Hispanic advocacy groups. Many legal immigrants also worry about the impact: will we have to wait even longer for green card
\"There are more than 10 million people who are in the U.S. illegally; it\'s clear that we can\'t deport such a large number\", a White House official wrote on his blog. It makes sense to allow those who haven\'t committed crimes and who aren\'t considered a threat to public safety stay and apply for work permit in United States.
