For Us Dreamers, What Are We Exactly Getting With The Immigration Reform?

Recommended Posts

Okay guys, i have a question.

If the immigration reform passes, what exactly are we getting with this????

Will be allow to join the military right away?

Will be able to travel without humanitarian reasons?

Is it true we will be able to apply for immediate citinzenship after 5 years?

Can any one please answer these questions! Thank you!

Yes

Yes

No

With the proposed RPI status, we would be able to join the military, travel outside of the U.S. and us dreamers would be able to apply for Permanent Residence after 5 years instead of the 10 years it would take everyone else.

I did hear though that right after we get the permanent residence we can immediately apply for citizenship.

If this reform passes, and we're left with the option of joining the military I will be more than tempted to join even though my family won't support...

i also heard that with RPI, for us at least, we will be able to apply for citizenship once the 5 yrs and once a green card is obtain because the "normal" 3 yr wait period in order to apply for citizenship would be enrolled into the 5 yr wait of RPI. 

 

the "normal" wait would be 3 yrs AFTER one has obtained a GC. we as RPIs (Dream path) would have those 3 yrs combined in the 5 yrs we would wait in order to apply for a GC. therefore making us eligible for citizenship right after we obtained a GC. 

 

now, there's no saying how long it will take to actually get a GC with this new system, let alone how long it would take in order to obtain citizenship.
