Immigration Reform Scam Alert!

There is no immigration reform or executive action right now, and no announcements of such coming up soon. Do not sign up or give money to anyone claiming to be able to prepare you for upcoming immigration changes!

Now that the November elections are over, there is much chatter among immigration activists, political commentators, and others about the prospects of immigration reform, or executive action (action taken by President Obama) for some sort of immigration benefit for undocumented foreign nationals. Right now, this is only chatter and speculation. That is, there has been no official announcement that President Obama (or Congress) is planning any sort of positive change in terms of immigration benefits for undocumented foreign nationals.

If and when there are changes in the provisions for undocumented foreign nationals, we do not know when it will be, what it will look like, and who would qualify.

Unfortunately there are people out there who are trying to have undocumented foreign nationals pay them money now to prepare them for a program (positive immigration changes – whether through Congress or the President) that does not exist yet, and may not exist for quite some time. This is a scam. Please do not pay anyone money to help you prepare for immigration changes. You can report any scam-type offers here.

Advertencia de Estafa del “Reforma de Inmigración”

No hay ni reforma de inmigración ni acción ejecutivo ahora, y no hay ningún anuncio de ni reforma ni acción del Presidente. iNo da dinero a nadie quien reclama que puede ayudarse o prepararse para cambios de inmigración siguiente.

Después de las elecciones en noviembre, hay mucha charla entre los activistas de inmigración, los comentaristas políticos, y otros sobre las perspectivas de la reforma, o de la acción ejecutiva (acciones de presidente Obama) para algún tipo de beneficio de inmigración para los extranjeros indocumentados. En este momento, esto es solo la charla y la especulación. Es decir, no ha habido ningún anuncio oficial que el presidente Obama (o el Congreso) está planeando algún tipo de cambio positivo de inmigración.

Si y cuando hay cambios en la ley, o acción por el Presidente, no sabemos cuándo sería, como sería, o quien calificaría.

Desafortunadamente, hay gente que están tratando de tener los extranjeros indocumentados a pagarles dinero para prepararlos para un programa de inmigración que no existe ahora, y es posible no vamos a tener por mucho tiempo. Esto es una estafa. Por favor, no pagar dinero a nadie para ayudarle a prepararse para los cambios de inmigración. Usted puede reportar ninguna oferta de tipo de estafa aquí.
