A special office will be open this evening until midnight to receive final applications from illegal aliens for permanent resident status.
Those who entered the United States illegally but have a current immigrant visa number may apply at the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service, 130 Delaware Ave. A $1,000 penalty must be paid.
This does not apply to aliens who entered the country legally but have since become illegal aliens by working without permission or overstaying their visa. They will be granted more time to apply for an adjustment of status. For more information, call 849-6760.
