| RE: Immigration amnesty law|
I believe I know the law you are referring to. If it is the same one, it only grants amnesty to those who had entered illegally or whose visa had expired IF: a parent, sibling, spouse, or child living here legally would sponser them, an employer would sponser them, or they could get residency status by any of the other legal means--as if they were here on a visa still. It was definately not an unconditional amnesty. The procedure was pretty much the same except you had to pay a $1,000 fine for being here illegally. You can learn more about this from these two websites:
You can find additional documents by conducting a google search under 'amnesty USA 245.
Again, I am not 100% sure this is what you are referring to, but it seems to be and is the only law I am aware of.
