President Obama's recent executive action has caused some interest but also some questions. I am not asking for anyone's opinion of whether it is right or wrong or whatever other opinions you have, just clarification upon who is eligible.

In regards to the section of undocumented immigrants already in the United States, this is what I understand of some of the key requirements to apply:

-5 or more years of residing in the United States

-parents of U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents

(http://www.uscis.gov/immigrationaction#1)

In order for a permanent resident to apply for their undocumented parent, does the LPR have to be a certain age? Is there a certain requirement specifying as to how long they need to have been a LPR? It seems as if the current requirements are too broad and that there must be more details involved with being eligible to apply. Does anyone else know of any other key requirements?

I wonder if the parents of US citizen children who entered legally but overstayed qualify. Looks like only the illegals...

erm....over-stayers are "illegals" ! you are confusing "documented" with "undocumented" immigrant.

1. Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) – Parents of young persons granted DACA will not receive any benefits under the President’s new policy. However, certain parents of US citizens and green card holders will be able to apply for relief and work cards under DAPA.

The age of the child is irrelevant. Even if you are 50+ years old and your son/daughter gets a green card through his/her citizen spouse, you may be eligible for DAPA. To qualify, you need to have resided in the US since January 1, 2010 and not be in lawful status on November 20, 2014. The background checks will be similar to those for DACA applicants. You can qualify even if you are under removal proceedings or are subject to a Final Order of Removal.

The work permit and biometrics fee is currently $465.

The application period will start in the Spring of 2015.

The executive action only applies to parents who came undocumented, i.e. without being inspected. It does not apply to parents who came on a visa and overstayed. At least that is the way I read it.

The amusing thing is that you have a lot to document.

I also read unlawful status so that would include people who overstayed.

More interestingly could someone in status claim they were out? For example if they were working without authorisation.

It clearly says undocumented in sections two and three. Overstays will not benefit.

Undocumented is a political not a legal term. Obviously you need documentation to apply.

The last Amnesty did not discriminate about how you entered.

Does anyone know what the visa/green card for Diferred Action for undocumented parents of legal residents would be called?

I believe the process has not been assigned a name, is that correct?

Neither a GC or a Visa but DAPA is the name.

It will be a few months before the details are out but immigrate2us is the place for discussion.
