New immigration legislation may benifit illegal immigrants in the US.

Natives of the county living in the US could be granted amnesty to remain there under new legislation currently being debated in the US. Meanwhile the closing date for the US visa lottery system is on the 30th December which for the first time will only accept electronic applications. Kerry people currently in the US who have overstayed 190 days cannot qualify for this visa and are barred form re-entering the state if they come home. According to Kieran C O’ Sullivan from Kenmare who works in the Irish immigration centre in Boston new legislation could benefit illegal immigrants in the US.
