It is designed to help people who are in the United States illegally. This includes people who entered the United States illegally as well as people who entered with a visa but remained in the United States after their visa expired

Under this law if immigrant has entered the country illegally, they can pay a $1000. 00 fine and be allowed to stay legally. This is an alternative to the current system which calls for their return to country of origin along with a 3-10 yr. ban on re-entry.

Section 245(I) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act allows certain immigrants who overstayed their visa or entered the US without inspection to pay a fine and apply for adjustment.
