What is Deferred Action for DREAMers?
Deferred action is a discretionary determination to defer removal action of an individual as an act of prosecutorial discretion. Deferred action does not confer lawful status upon an individual. In addition, although a foreign national granted deferred action will not be considered to be accruing unlawful presence in the United States during the period deferred action is in effect, deferred action does not absolve individuals of any previous or subsequent periods of unlawful presence.
Under existing regulations, an individual who has been granted deferred action may be eligible to receive employment authorization for the period of deferred action, Deferred action can be terminated at any time at the agency’s discretion or renewed by the agency.

The Obama Administration announced on June 15, 2012, that it will stop deporting some younger undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, also known as “dreamers,” and will grant them work permits or work authorization through a program called "Deferred Action."
This new policy is intended to not only stop the deportation of some in removal proceedings or with final removal orders, but also grant temporary deferred action status to those not in removal proceedings.
USCIS believes an estimated 1.4 million people will be eligible for this program. A Deferred Action attorney can help.
Before you apply for Deferred Action you should understand what you are getting into…
Deferred action is a discretionary determination to defer removal action of an individual as an act of prosecutorial discretion. Deferred action does not confer lawful status upon an individual. Deferred Action is a legal process, involving the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the federal bureaucracy. It is not a right. Deferred Action does not grant immigration status. Eligibility for Deferred Action must be established with acceptable evidence. Deferred Action will be denied to those who are not eligible. Deferred action can be terminated at any time at the agency’s discretion or renewed by the agency.
Deferred Action is about someone's life and future in the United States-isn't that worth consulting an experienced immigration lawyer?
Deferred action status can be revoked at any time by the government. It is important to have all the information on Deferred Action law.
