Resolving Immigration ProblemsIn An Honest & Responsible Manner

California immigrantion: Visa plan could help millions of people

Obtaining documentation to live and work in the United States can be a much harder task than many people seem to realize. However, it was recently reported that U.S. immigrantion officials have big plans for issuing visas over the next decade. Current and potential immigrants, in California and elsewhere, can take steps to try to secure these visas and, eventually, take further actions to try to receive status adjustments.

A report released by one of the U.S. Senate’s subcommittees on immigrantion matters claims that immigrantion officials may issue approximately 10.5 million visas between now and 2025. These would be temporary visas for those wishing to enter the country for work-related purposes or to attend schools. The report did not specify if any limitations will be placed on certain types of visas.

Once a person receives an initial visa, he or she may be able to apply for a status adjustment down the line. Approximately 1 million people may be granted permanent residency status per year, according to current policy. In the last five years, it is believed that well over 5 million individuals were given this status.

Will the plan to offer so many visas make the process of obtaining one any easier? This question has yet to be answered. Even though more visas may be granted, it does not mean that immigrantion standards will be ignored. Immigrants, in California and elsewhere, can seek legal assistance to help secure the visas necessary for their needs and, if desired, apply for status adjustments once proper documentation has been granted.
