who may not have any statutory forms of relief from deportation may now at least seek prosecutorial discretion based on these essentially humanitarian factors. The individual may therefore be able to con- vince ICE to terminate or administratively close removal proceedings, not to execute a removal order, or some other remedy that would not result in the individual’s deportation.
Until the legislators work on fixing the broken immigration system, the ICE memos provide at least a glimpse that the government recognizes the contributions that immigrants have on the community and the futility in attempting to remove all immigration violators.
discretion is entirely guided by the decision of an ICE officer, it is vital that individuals seeking such favorable action effectively communicate their equities through legal counsel intricately familiar with the poli- cies and the laws.

Frequently asked questions about student visas
BTAINING a U.S. education is an important investment in your future. Every year it is estimated that 500,000 students come to the
United States to study. However many are not clear on what steps to take to obtain a student visa. What is a student visa? A student visa in the United States is known as an F-1 student visa. It is for full-time students who are enrolled in a language or academic program. If you obtain an F-1 visa, you will be authorized to remain in the United States for the length of your school program, plus an additional 60 days.
How do I know what type of visa I will need? If you are an academic student and are planning to
attend a university, high school, private el- ementary school or seminary, you will need an F visa. If you are planning to attend a vocational program or other non-academic program, you will need an M visa. How do I know if I need one? If you are planning to study in the United States and will be attending school a minimum of 18 hours per week, you will require an F-1 visa. If you will be studying less than 18 hours per week you will need a visitor’s visa.
How long does it take to get a student visa?
Obtaining a student visa takes time, so it is important to get an early start in the process. If you have never applied before, you may be required to complete an inter- view. It is important to note that embassies and consulates will normally not issue a visa earlier than 120 days prior to the start of your schooling. If you apply well in advance, your application will be held until it is within the appropriate time frame. What do I need to apply? You will need a SEVIS (student and exchange and visitor system) generated document (an I-20 or DS-2019) issued by a university or college. You will need this form to apply for your visa. This form will be provided when you are officially admit- ted into your academic program. If you planning to be an academic or language student, you will need form I-20A-B, Certificate of Eligibility for Non-immigrant (F-1) Student Status. For vocational students you will need form I-20M-N Certificate of Eligibility for Non- immigrant. You will also need: A valid passport 2x2 photo
Diploma or school transcript Standardized test scores
What are the student visa requirements? You must be accepted into a University or other learning institution You must know the English language You must be able to prove that you will have financial support while in the U.S. You must prove non-immigrant intent Can I travel with this type of visa? An F-1 visa holder can travel in and out of the United States as needed during the duration of their studies in the U.S. It is important however to be sure to carry your documentation to prove your status every time you enter the country. Am I able to work?
F-1 visa holders are allowed to work a part-time job on campus. Special permis- sion may be granted to allow work off campus if it economically urgent or the job requires practical training. If you have been enrolled in school for at least six months, you can be eligible for practical training (internships, cooperative work/ study programs) off campus.
If you are looking to relocate to the United States and attending school, it is im- portant that your immigration paperwork goes smoothly. Any mistakes or delays can
