Once Trump is in office in 2017, regardless how people's waivers are going new laws will be introduced.
If you have a waiver pending, your chances are good to get the 3-5 years unless it was your first time applying then expect a 1 year waiver, but wait times are between the 9-18 month zone if not longer or less for first time (1) year waiver.
Trump does not like criminals, or people from colored race.... THAT IS A FACT!
His slogan make "America Great Again" is basically saying make "AMERICA WHITE AGAIN"
He will add more headache to an already volatile situation @ DHS, which was so over-burdened with waiver applications, they just started with giving out 5 year ones if it was a renewal. This is the first time it was ever done cause of the back log, and now with Trump it looks like the wait times will even be greater so to speak.
Changes to the forms have already begun which are getting more complex and sophisticated, and with greater fear the prices "WILL" go up also... it will go even higher just have to wait for it.
This is a great forum for accessing knowledge, but even that's not going to be enough in the coming next "four" years as only sources close if not reliable to DHS will slowly trickle out information, making immigration lawyers wealthy.
I don't believe in this, but people who help on waivers need to make a living also, so for those who rely on this site...get ready for the people who will ask both your arms and legs for help for "FREE" ... it won't be free cause no one will freely share there opinions... it will cost every one because well the majority of racists voted for Trump and his allowance of GHBTP!
No one ever gives away trade secrets...especially if you have to gain from one!
