The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996

Congress passed the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996 (IIRAIRA 96) with the intent of cracking down on what was seen as the growing danger posed by illegal immigration. The law allows for the easy deportation of illegal immigrants, and this can seriously affect people looking to make a life for themselves in the United States.

If you or someone you love is facing the effects of the IIRAIRA 96, the Austin immigration attorneys of the Law Office of William Jang, PLLC, would like to discuss your case and your needs with you. Please contact us today at 512-323-2333 for more information.

The Provisions of IIRAIRA 96

The Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act has three scaling provisions aimed at preventing illegal immigrants from returning to the United States. These provisions are:

  • A person who has been living in the United States illegally for more than 180 days but less than one year cannot return to the United States for at least three years, unless that person receives a pardon.
  • If the person has lived illegally in the US for over a year, he or she cannot return for at least 10 years, unless that person receives a pardon.
  • If the person illegally returns within that time period, he or she is barred from filing for a waiver for at least 10 years.

This law has been questioned by some lawyers and other legal specialists because of its perceived unconstitutionality.
