To qualify, people must prove they were in America as of September 3rd to get an 18 month extension. Those who pose a threat aren’t eligible.
Even with that said, many are skeptical of the move. With rumors of sleeper cells and terrorists lying in wait, many see flaws in this move. Let us know what you think in thr comments below!
From Washington Times:
The Obama administration Thursday announced it will grant legal status and halt deportations for potentially thousands of citizens of Yemen, saying the security situation on the ground there is so bad that the U.S. has a moral obligation to protect people.
Applicants must undergo a security screening and must prove they were in the U.S. as of Sept. 3 in order to qualify. They will win an 18-month reprieve from being kicked out of the U.S.
