TRUMP'S IMMIGRATION REGULATION FOR LEGAL IMMIGRANTS

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

 

I wish to tap into your expert knowledge and advise on the issue of the immigration regulation released yesterday by the Trump administration on how they plan to limit access to visas and green cards for legal immigrants seeking to come to the u.s.

 

Myself and my family received our DV visas last month and we plan to enter the u.s. and activate our visas at the end of next month. We used the host system as part of the interviewing process but we plan to change our host address from Virginia to Boston. We are both professionals with two kids (6 & 3).

 

1. Would this new immigration regulation affect us?

 

2. Would the regulation affect the issuance of our green cards or any other form of aid like children's school?

 

3. Should we enter now instead of our proposed end of September entry?

 

Thank you and would like to hear from ya'll.

What regulation?


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

You’ve been granted your immigrant visas, you’re fine. A DV visa is not dependent on the affidavit of support anyway.

The rule change does not impact any visas already granted, nor change anything about existing LPRs. It can impact one's ability to be a financial sponsor for others in the future in the limited circumstances within the rule.

Most grateful, am good now. We would be entering in September to activate our visas and we hope to pay for the green cards before entering so I was very worried about the outcome of the regulations as announced.

 

Thanks everyone for helping to calm the raging emotional storm.
