Obama's immigration reform will affect a third of New York's illegal immigrants

More than a third of immigrants living in New York without the necessary documents to stay legally in the country, thanks to the edicts of President Obama, can avoid the threat of deportation. In total, these measures will affect more than 238 000 people living in the metropolis, according to experts from the Migration Policy Institute in Washington.

The opportunity to acquire a status close to legal, will receive 37% of illegal immigrants in New York. In total, the largest city in the United States is home to more than 643 foreign citizens without documents to stay in America. In the country as a whole, 000 million illegal immigrants or 5,2% of the total number - almost half - can hope for protection from deportation.

The largest number of immigrants who will get a chance thanks to Obama's reform live in Queens - 91 people. 000 live in Brooklyn, 71 in the Bronx, 000 in Manhattan, mostly in the north, and only 43 in Staten Island.

Two thirds of Queens' illegal immigrants came to New York from Asia or South America. By the way, Queens is the most ethnically diverse area not only of the Big Apple, but also of the United States.

According to Randy Kapps, director of research at the Institute for Migration Policy, the numbers for the country and for New York differ because the nature of illegal immigration in the metropolis is different than, say, Texas or California.

“There are more Caribbean and South American illegal immigrants in New York than in the country as a whole,” says Capps.

Unlike Mexicans and citizens of Central America who illegally cross the southern border of the United States to stay in the country, the vast majority of New York illegals got to America legally. They arrived in the United States on visas, but did not return to their homeland on time, staying in the States when their visas expired.

The state of affairs and prospects for such people - holders of outdated American visas - are better than for the “conquerors” of the Texas desert who illegally entered the country. For example, illegal immigrants with expired visas can marry or get married and thus find their way to legal status.
