There is no new law. There is a directive regarding prosecutorial discretion for most minor immigration violations. There is no new law that applies to someone already deported.

There is no such a thing as new law. Even if there is, it won't apply for deported.

There is no new law. President Obama is in the process of implementing a policy to defer removing certain people who are in removal proceedings to better uses government resources. There is nothing in this policy about allowing already-deported people to come back to the United States.

There is no new immigration law. President Obama and DHS merely announced a change in policy regarding using resources to place individuals in removal proceedings and remove them from the United States. Your friend may be eligible for benefits under the existing immigration laws, but additional information about his background would be needed.

If you are referring to the prosecutorial discretion memo that was announced a few weeks ago, it is not a new law. It has nothing to do with people that are living outside the U.S. after deportation. People that have returned unlawfully after a recent removal will most likely not benefit from the memo.

    There is no new law. If he was deported, he must remain outside the US for 10 years or qualify for a waiver of inadmissibilty.

    There is no "new" immigration law that you can use. There has been a lot of information and misinformation about the announcement from the Obama administration regarding reviewing cases. ALL the administration has stated they will do is that they will review cases on a case-by-case basis to decide whether or not a person who is now in Removal/Deportation proceedings will need to continue to fight their case or whether they will be allowed to remain in the U.S. This process is expected to help those who have U.S. Citizen/Lawful Permanent Resident spouses, parents and children, and those children who were brought into the U.S. by parents or others. There is NO comment from the Administration as to whether they will allow people with prior removal orders to re-enter the U.S. even if they have U.S. Citizen/Lawful Resident family members in the U.S.
