WASHINGTON — Filipino-American World War II veterans who have been waiting for years to bring their family members to the U.S. will soon be able to do so through a new policy, the Obama administration announced on Wednesday.

The policy, announced along with a spate of other recommendations to improve the legal immigration system, will help the thousands of American citizens and legal permanent residents of Filipino descent who fought for the U.S. in World War II and are now trying to help family members come to the country legally.
