An US Immigration Question
I read this report on yahoo and had some questions I hope some of you are able to answer. I have a illegal friend in college, so I'm hoping for the best. Here's the article:
"The proposed agreement would allow illegal immigrants to come forward and obtain a "Z visa" and — after paying fees and a $5,000 fine — ultimately get on track for permanent residency, which could take between eight and 13 years. Heads of households would have to return to their home countries first."
1. Does anyone know how much these "fees" would cost? Ballpark?
2. "Heads of households would have to return to their home countries first." Can someone explain that sentence please? What makes someone the head of the household? Why would they have to return to their home country first?
3. My college friend, 20, has been in the US illegally since he was 7. He came from another country with a Visa, but stayed in the US once it expired. He has no green card, but does have a social security and driver's liscence. His social security says "not valid for work" but some of the places he applied for did not ask him for it, so he didn't have to show it. He has always payed his taxes. Like I mentioned, he is going to the same University I am. So, what do you guys think will end up happening to my friend if this law passes?
