Immigrants and those who work with immigrants need to be cautious over the next few days. This initiative has the potential to impact the lives of hundreds of thousands—and perhaps even millions—of immigrants in a positive way. This means that by the weekend, we will see scam artists out in immigrant communities selling “Amnesty” representation.
The most important thing immigrants can do right now is hold off on paying anyone for services related to this change in immigration policy. Until we know exactly what this program entails, don’t waste your money.
Long Island Wins will provide regular updates as they become available.
