President Obama Grants Ebola Work Permit & TPS To Citizens of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone To ease the suffering of affected immigrants and alleviate their pain, the United States has been magnanimous enough, after the outcry of stakeholders, to grant temporary protected status to citizens of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, the three hard hit nations in Africa by the deadly Ebola virus. Many thanks to the government of the United States for extending the same humanitarian immigration assistance extended to Haiti, during the earthquake, to Africa recognizing that Ebola is also a disaster of grave magnitude. The Law Office of Joseph Famuyide is now calling on citizens of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone in the United States who are not in any legal status to come forward to receive this benefit. The filing period commenced on November 21, 2014. All prospective applicants must apply before May 20, 2015.
Attorney Famuyide Wins Green Card For Immigrant After Court Proceedings It took about 4 years to complete, but this hopeless immigrant obtained his green card when he least expected it. It was another spectacular victory for Attorney Famuyide who won after another attorney botched and abandoned the case. The joy of this immigrant cannot be quantified when he received the news of the issuance of his green card by the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services. It was the conclusion of another journey to uncertainty and pseudo slavery. The misery of this immigrant ended just like that and now, he is planning to travel abroad to see his loved ones after many years in what could be termed an exile.
More Immigrants Now Qualify For Deferred Action For Dreamers As President Obama Removes The Age Barrier On November 20, 2014, President Obama through the use of Executive Order helped many young immigrants who were not qualified when the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrival (DACA) was announced on June 15, 2012. Many of these immigrants called “the Dreamers” were disqualified with the age ceiling and the June 15, 2007 arrival date. By a stroke of his pen, the President has modified the program to include many more immigrants by changing the arrival date from June 15, 2007 to January 1, 2010 and also by removing the age ceiling which was originally 31. Now any immigrant who entered the U.S. before the age of 16 and has lived in the United States since January 1, 2010 who is currently of any age can apply for DACA. Please note that these youngsters, popularly called “the dreamers” were immigrants’ children brought to the United States by their parents at a tender age without their knowledge of the illegality of their mode of entry. Some of these dreamers were under the impression that they were citizens of the United States, until they got to High School. Some were told by their parents of their status while preparing to enter College. The sudden revelations of illegal status have shattered the hopes and aspirations of many of these dreamers.
