Since the announcement of immigration executive action broke, the question that I have seen most is this “will immigration reform help my family based pending petition (F1, F2, F3 and F4)?”. Thank you for asking all your questions.
Unfortunately, immigration executive action does not affect any family-based petitions at this time. If unused visas were to have been recaptured, then the current backlog would have been eliminated or reduced which in turn would have helped family-based cases too.
President Obama can only do so much on his own. Congress still needs to take action. If you want to see change in your immigration circumstances, you need to continue to push for immigration reform. I am sorry I cannot give you better news.
