LA REFORMA INTEGRAL DE LA INMIGRACIÓN … MÁS CERCA QUE NUNCA!

Los senadores esbozan un plan de trabajo más detallado de lo que una nueva política de inmigración estadounidense se vería como hoy, a partir de su convocatoria anterior. Lo llaman la “seguridad fronteriza, las oportunidades económicas y la Ley de Inmigración de Modernización de 2013”. Es un elemento de cambio real. Si bien vamos a seguir leyendo y le damos nuestra opinión sobre él, aquí es preliminar, fácil de entender, resumen del plan:

SEGURIDAD FRONTERIZA
Tomará por lo menos 6 meses, y probablemente más, para el gobierno para iniciar un plan para asegurar la frontera sur. Hasta que estos planes de comenzar, nadie de los indocumentados pueden solicitar cualquier cosa.

ESTATUS DE INMIGRANTE DE PROVISIÓN REGISTRADO (RPI)
Una vez que el plan de seguridad fronteriza está en marcha, los indocumentados podrán solicitar el nuevo “Immigrant Provisión registrada” o estado “RPI”. Esta es una nueva estatus que no existe actualmente dentro de la ley inmigratoria.
RPI es un “ajuste” del estatus, lo que significa que será posible solicitar sin tener que salir de los Estados Unidos.
Para calificar para el RPI, tiene que haber estado en los EE.UU. desde el 12/31/2011, pagar una multa de $500 (a excepción de “Soñadores”), pagar (algunos) los impuestos, y no tener más de 3 delitos menores o una felonia.
Los cónyuges y los niños en los EE.UU. puede obtener el estado de RPI derivado.
Incluso las personas que han sido deportados o están en proceso de deportación puede ser permitido solicitar la condición de RPI. Una vez concedida, tendrá una duración de 6 años, renovable una vez más (con otra multa de $ 500).
Después de 10 años de estado de RPI, suponiendo que la frontera es segura, las personas pueden solicitar el estatus de residencia permanente habitual (y pagar otra multa de $ 1000), siempre y cuando puedan demostrar que pagaron todos los impuestos y tienen un historial criminal limpio.
Dos excepciones: Soñadores y trabajadores agrícolas. Estarán exentos de las penas $ 500, y sólo tendrá que esperar 5 años en el estado de RPI antes de poder solicitar su tarjeta verde, y de forma inmediata a partir de entonces elegible para la ciudadanía.

Even after 20 years of practice, it still feels like magic: a client walking into the US, full of fear, no visa, no hope, and wins asylum, and as of today, proudly holds a green card. This case sticks out for me, though. Here's why:Former AG Jeff Sessions changed the law during his tenure to make cases like my client's nearly impossible to win. (Matter of A-B-) which has since been vacated under Biden.But at the time of his trial, it was still good law.Our judge made a crucial factual distinction based on how we presented the case, and actually held that A-B- didn't apply.It was legal poetry.My client, moments before the decision, came to me with tears in his eyes.He said, "Can you ask them to just grant asylum for my daughter? I'll go back if they do. The gang will kill me but at least I'll know my daughter will be safe."I still don't know who was cutting onions on the courtroom that day.Thankfully it wasn't necessary. The judge granted asylum to father and daughter.And now they have green cards.And guess what, haters? They did it the right way, even though neither of them had a visa when they entered the US!Contact us!📞: +1(703) 964-0245✉️: [email protected]🌐: linktr.ee/TheHMALawFirm ... See MoreSee Less

Ganesh Chaturthi is a ten-day festival, held to commemorate the birth of the Hindu god of wisdom, wealth, and fortune, Ganesha. It's observed with prayer, public and private displays of Ganesha idols, the chanting of Vedic hymns, and fasting. On the final day of the festival, an idol of Ganesha is carried in a public procession and plunged into a nearby body of water. When the clay dissolves, it is believed Ganesha returns to Shiva. Ganesh Chaturthi is one of the most important festivals in the Hindu religion and is widely celebrated in Maharashtra, Telangana, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, and Karnataka, and other parts of India.Contact us!📞: +1(703) 964-0245✉️: [email protected]🌐: linktr.ee/TheHMALawFirm#ganeshchaturthi #ganesha #hindu #thehmalawfirm ...

It includes a variety of traditions such as Vallam Kali (boat races), Pulikali (tiger dances), Onathallu (martial arts), and a nine-course vegetarian feast called Onasadya on the last day.

The elephant procession is the peak of the festival, with decorated elephants parading and dancing with people at the place of the procession.Onam is Hindu-based but not limited to Hindu castes, people from all communities can participate in this colorful event, which makes this festival a reminder that despite all the conflicts in the world, being from different places, and having different cultures, we can all celebrate cultural diversity in many forms.Contact us!📞: +1(703) 964-0245✉️: [email protected]🌐: linktr.ee/TheHMALawFirm#onam #hindu #thehmalawfirm ...

This holiday is celebrated on the last Monday in August to honor and remember all the revolution's heroes who helped establish the foundation for the country’s independence. The date chosen is intended to mark the 'Cry of Pugad Lawin' in August 1896, which was the first act of insurrection against the Spanish colonizers by the Katipunan, a hitherto secret Filipino revolutionary movement. This is seen as the start of the Philippine revolution and movement towards independence.On September 28, 1901, the United States Philippine Commission approved Act No. 243, which would erect a monument in Luneta to commemorate the memory of José Rizal, Filipino patriot, writer, and poet. The shrine was inaugurated on December 30, 1913, coinciding with Rizal's 17th death anniversary.Although the Philippines transitioned from authoritarian rule in 1986, the struggle continues every day due to the limited freedom of the Media, and restricted political rights and civil liberties.Contact us!📞: +1(703) 964-0245✉️: [email protected]🌐: linktr.ee/TheHMALawFirm#Phillippines #Political #Civil #TheHMALawFirm ...

Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.Women’s Equality Day commemorates the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting the right to vote to women. The amendment was first introduced in 1878. In 1971, the U.S. Congress designated August 26 as Women’s Equality Day.There has been progress and reforms in several countries over the last decades like the 1973 decision of Roe v Wade which enshrined the legal right to an abortion in the US however, there are still many women and girls who suffer gender discrimination, including the US Supreme Court vote to roll back abortion rights. Women’s Equality Day helps us acknowledge the success stories of women of the past and perhaps most importantly, it reminds us that the struggle is not over yet.Contact us!📞: +1(703) 964-0245✉️: [email protected]🌐: linktr.ee/TheHMALawFirm#womenpower #womensrights #equality #TheHMALawFirm ...

Afghan Independence Day on August 19 commemorates the Anglo-Afghan Treaty of 1919 that ended British rule in the central Asian nation. This year we chose to write about it back-to-back with the Ukrainian Independence Day post as a reminder that Ukraine isn’t the only country who will not be able to celebrate freely and there should be international backing and recognition to all countries. In 2021, events leading up to the Taliban's takeover of Kabul in August exacerbated displacement throughout the country. For the 15th consecutive year in a row, internal displacement in Afghanistan increased with an additional 777,400 Afghans displaced across all provinces. The impact of the conflict on women and girls has been particularly devastating – 80 percent of all forcibly displaced within Afghanistan are women and children. “Afghanistan’s displacement crisis is one of the largest and most protracted in UNHCR’s seven-decade history. We’re now seeing a third generation of Afghan children born in exile,’’ says UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi.Contact us!📞: +1(703) 964-0245✉️: [email protected]🌐: linktr.ee/TheHMALawFirm#Afghanistan #Liberty #TheHMALawFirm ...

In 1918 January 22nd was recognized as the Day of the Declaration of Independence of the Ukrainian People’s Republic by the Ukrainian Diaspora, however, the current form of the holiday was celebrated for the first time on July 16th of 1991, on the first anniversary of the declaration of state sovereignty of Ukraine passed by the Ukrainian Parliament in 1990, but since the declaration of independence was issued on August 24th, 1991, the date of the holiday was changed.Due to the current situation, this year’s holiday is a reminder that every country should remain sovereign without threat of war or violence and that all the attention being brought to Ukraine should be used not only to help and support the Ukrainian people but also to consider the situation of many countries in the middle east, who have been under attack by more powerful countries for a long time and need the same support and help.Contact us!📞: +1(703) 964-0245✉️: [email protected]🌐: linktr.ee/TheHMALawFirm#Ukraine #Liberty #IndependenceDay #TheHMALawFirm ...

Freedom of religion or belief, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to peaceful assembly and the right to freedom of association are interdependent, interrelated and mutually reinforcing. There are continuing acts of intolerance and violence based on religion or belief against individuals, including against persons belonging to religious communities and religious minorities around the world, and the number and intensity of such incidents, which are often of a criminal nature and may have international characteristics, are increasing.We should learn from history and act accordingly to stop and teach tolerance.
