On June 15, 2012, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a memorandum that in effect grants temporary immigration benefits to certain young people who entered the United States as children. The decision is fundamentally grounded in a need to enforce this nation’s immigration laws in a sensible manner, taking into consideration the fact that many of this new policy’s intended beneficiaries have never had any intent to violate the law. The Federal Government is thereby defining its priorities as to who to deport.
This informative, 1-hour seminar will address the following topics:
- What is Deferred Action?
- Who is eligible for Deferred Action?
- When will applications be accepted and what should you prepare now?
- Why did the Government announce this new policy?
