Spouses and children can be included if in the country. Persons currently pending removal may also apply, Application window is one year with an additional year extension allowed, Must pass a criminal background check, Pay $500 penalty, all owed taxes, and processing fee, RPI applicants for permanent residency go to the back of the line., Changes to legal immigration, Eliminates the backlog for family and employment-based visas, Eliminates the Diversity Visa program after 2014, Creates a merit based visa, Replaces the agricultural H-2A visa with a W-2 / W-3 visa, streamlining the process, Replaces I-9 employment verification form with mandatory use of E-Verify.
