A Decision By The US Supreme Court Monday Means That Many Children Of Immigrants May Have To Wait Months If Not Years More To Gain A Visa To Enter And Live In The United States. The Split Decision By The High Court Effectively Means If A Parent Applies For A Visa For Their Family, But One Of Their Children Or Other Relatives Turns 21 Before They Reach The Front Of The Line, That So Called Aged Out Child Will Probably Have To Start His Or Her Wait All Over Again As An Adult. That Is A Wait That In Some Cases Could Take Years. The Decision, Which Was Supported By The Obama Administration, Will Most Likely Have A Major Effect On Many Asian Families Awaiting Their Turn To Enter The US. Daybreak Asia's Ira Mellman Spoke About The Ruling Monday With Erin Oshiro, Senior Staff Attorney On Immigration And Immigration Rights With AAJC ... Asian-Americans Advancing Justice.
