Illegal immigrants brough to U.S. as children may be eligible for deferred action

Posted on July 3rd, 2012 No Comments

Homeland Security announced last month that a new policy, effective immediately, will allow immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children to be relieved from removal proceedings. In order to be eligible for deferred action, you must be able to prove that:

  1. You came to the U.S. before the age of 16;
  2. You have lived in the U.S. for five continuous years and were in the country on June 15, 2012;
  3. You are currently in school, a high school graduate, have a GED, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Armed Forces or Coast Guard;
  4. You have not been convicted of a felony, a significant offense, multiple misdemeanors, or pose a threat to national and public security;
  5. You are younger than 30 years-old.
