    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Undocumented Costa Ricans living in the United States should seek advice with a consulates regarding their illegal status after President Obama’s  immigration regulation decree on Thursday night.

    The Ambassador of Costa Rica, Román Macay, said with certainty that there are a number of undocumented Costa Ricans in the United States that could benefit from the new guidelines laid out by President Obama.

    This Thursday the president of the United States announced new measures which sees to give legal immigration status for 5 million of the 11 million immigrants living in the country by allowing them to work under a green card and suspending deportation orders.

    After the announcement, the US National Ambassador explained that many Costa Ricans remain undocumented immigrants in the country and do not approach the embassy or consulates for fear of being deported, which prevents them from knowing with certainty how many Ticos will benefit from the new regulations.

    Basically, the new guidelines will allow a person with children born in the United States or residing in that country since January 1, 2010 to request the temporary deportation suspension and opt for a work permit.
