Breaking: Obama administration immediately halts deportation of dreamers.
President Obama announced that the policy of prosecutorial discretion?which allows immigration agents to defer deportation of low-risk, non criminal undocumented immigrants?will be expanded to all DREAM eligible youth
Here are some of the details of the new policy:
To be eligible you must
- ?Be between 15 years or older and 30 years or younger may apply
- ?Be in US for at least 5 (as of today, 6/15/12)
- ?Have to have maintained continuous residence (relatively flexible interpretation)
There are no restriction on when you can apply?(i.e. no window that closes after a year, for example)
Grants of Deferred Application are for 2 years and are renewable
Criminal Ineligibility:?If you have been convicted of a felony, a serious misdemeanor or three minor misdemeanors not all stemming from same incident, then you are not eligible.
We estimate that as a result of this policy extension,?nearly 1 million DREAMers will be spared from deportation.?This is truly an exciting day
