On June 15th, 2012, President Obama Made History.
On June 15th, 2012 President Obama announced that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will put a stop to deporting undocumented immigrants that meet certain criteria. Starting on August 15th, 2012, if you are a DREAMer that qualifies, you will be able to submit an application to US Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). If your application is approved, you will be able to get a legal status called “deferred action”, now officially called “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)” by DHS.
This status will make you eligible to file for a work authorization permit, obtain a social security number or individual taxpayer identification number, and have protection against being deported. Depending on the state you live in you may be able to obtain a driver’s license and in-state college tuition. Your application will need to be renewed every two years.
We recommend that you begin to obtain the documentation necessary to support your application and begin to educate yourself on the ins and outs of deferred action. Our firm has put together the information on this site that we believe will help guide you in that process and we are happy to talk to you free of charge to answer questions you may have.
