A new immigration policy will make it easier for families to stay together while spouses and children work to obtain green cards.

The policy, announced this week by the Obama administration will go into effect on March 4th. It allows immigrants who entered the country illegally to remain in the United States during a waiver process that typically takes up to a year to complete.

In the past, obtaining a waiver has meant traveling to Mexico to process requests for permanent residency.
