Will immigrants in removal proceedings be allowed to apply for RPI?

While only a selected group of illegal immigrants who were deported will be eligible for adjustment of status to RPI, the good news in the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013 is that anyone without papers who has received removal orders or is already in removal proceedings will be allowed to apply.  They will need to provide information on their deportation orders and as soon as they apply, their deportation will be put on hold, they will receive a work permit and authentic Social Security number, and will be able to go on with their lives like any other undocumented alien.  The paperwork related to removal will be cleared from the record once they are approved as a Registered Provision Immigrant.
