President Obama stated that the United States will provide “deferred action” for a period of two years and renewable every two years. This will allow Congress to create a more permanent solution. It will stop deportation of these young immigrant children and let them continue to complete their schooling, military service and/or their jobs.
The recent Deferred Action process is very beneficial to you if you qualify. It means:
- You can work legally in the U.S.
- You can obtain a Social Security Number
- You cannot be deported
- You will can reside in the U.S. for 2 years and then renew.
To qualify you will need to meet the requirements and show appropriate documentation that proves you meet the requirements.
Deferred Action – Why is the U.S. doing this?
President Obama wants to use Department of Homeland Security resource more effectively – to spend time capturing high priority cases. They do not want to catch individuals who were brought to this country through no fault of their own as children, have no records and are a valueable part of our community. Deferred Action allows these young people to stay without fear. President Obama says, “It’s just not right”.
