USCIS ANNOUNCES NEW GUIDANCE REGARDING INDOCHINESE PAROLEE ADJUSTMENTS (FOR NATIVE OF VIETNAM, CAMBODIA, OR LAOS) – THIS IS NOT EMPLOYMENT BASED

New Law Eliminates Adjustment Cap and Three-Year Filing Window
Washington, D.C.– U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today two significant changes to the management of the Indochinese Parolee Adjustment Program. Statutory changes included in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005 (Public Law 108-447) have eliminated both the three-year filing period window and the adjustment cap.

Prior to the recent changes, Section 586 of Public Law 106-429 (often referred to as the “Indochinese Parolee Adjustment Act”) limited the total number of eligible individuals who could adjust under this provision to 5,000. The Act also required individuals to file their applications within a three-year period that began on January 27, 2003 and was scheduled to end on January 25, 2006. Both of these restrictions have been eliminated.

The Indochinese Parolee Adjustment Act authorizes the granting of lawful permanent resident status to certain eligible parolees from Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Following the Vietnam War, certain individuals from those three countries were paroled into the United States and have remained here without a permanent resolution of their immigration status.

To qualify for adjustment of status under Section 586, the applicant must be a native or citizen of Vietnam, Cambodia or Laos who was inspected and paroled into the United States prior to October 1, 1997 and was physically present in the United States on October 1, 1997. In addition, the applicant must have been paroled into the United States in one of three ways: from Vietnam through the Orderly Departure Program, from a refugee camp in East Asia, or from a displaced person camp administered by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Thailand.
Eligible individuals applying for adjustment of status under section 586 must send Form I-485 (Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status), all required documentation, and all corresponding applications to: Nebraska Service Center, P.O. Box 87485, Lincoln NE 68501-7485. Eligibility and procedural requirements are explained on the USCIS website at: http://uscis.gov/graphics/services/r...adjust_VCL.htm.

Principal Applicant Eligibility
To be eligible, an alien must demonstrate that he or she:
1. Is a citizen or native of Vietnam, Cambodia, or Laos;
2. Was inspected and paroled into the United States before October 1, 1997;
3. Was physically present in the United States prior to and on October 1, 1997;
4. Was paroled into the United States:
a. From Vietnam under the auspices of the Orderly Departure Program;
b. From a refugee camp in East Asia; or
c. From a displaced persons camp administered by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Thailand;
5. Applied for adjustment of status under section 586 of Public Law 106-429 and paid all appropriate fees; and
6. Is otherwise eligible to receive an immigrant visa and otherwise admissible to the United States for permanent residence except for those grounds of inadmissibility that do not apply or that are waived. See the regulation for information about admissibility.

Default What a misnomer.

I have wondered for a long time what the hell this thing was.

Imagine with such a name................It refers to neither INDIANS nor CHINESE the two main countries affected by retrogression!

And if it refers to aliens admitted before 1997, why is it taking so long to adjudicate 5K cases.

USCIS logic I guess. Sometimes I wonder if knowing makes you simply more hopeless with these brainiacs.
