Immigration Reform and Newman Class Members

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is a non-profit civil rights organization whose mission is to advance the Hispanic population in the United States in the areas of economics, education, housing, health, politics, and civil rights. As supporters of LULAC and its mission, the Virginia immigration attorneys at Fayad Law, PC are always involved in educating the public on its activities and accomplishments.

Founded in 1929, LULAC is the oldest and largest active membership organization serving the Latino community in the United States.The LULAC movement is currently supporting and advocating for a comprehensive immigration reform package in Washington, DC which, if passed by Congress, could allow undocumented workers in the United States a path to citizenship. LULAC also offers counseling to those in need of immigration or civil rights assistance throughout the United States.

Newman Class Members

One of LULAC's most impressive achievements has been to forge a settlement with the United States government correcting past injustices of immigrants who were legally eligible for adjustment of status, but were denied by INS. Under a recent decision by the Western District court of California, those individuals who were eligible for legalization under 245A of the INA and were informed by an INS officer that they were not eligible for legalization, between the period of May 5, 1987 and May 4, 1988, because they travelled outside of the United States and returned with a visitor's visa, student visa, or any other type of visa or travel document, are now able to apply for status as temporary residents and work authorization by filing the proper forms and supporting documentation. In order to be eligible for this status, you must have filed for class membership under the Newman decision.
