What Is Administrative Relief?
On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced that his Administration will modify immigration policy. The Department of Homeland Security issued a series of memos to make changes to removal priorities, Secure Communities, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, deferred action, provisional waivers, parole, and more. In general, the reforms fall into three categories: (i) changes to immigration enforcement policy; (ii) deferred action expansion; and (iii) changes to our legal immigration system.
