Young undocumented immigrants should be aware of a major immigration policy change affecting over I million aliens residing in the United States. This major change was first announced on June 15, 2012 by the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) wherein they announced that certain young undocumented immigrants could obtain temporary status and a work authorization/ID card. It is called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”). The process is in place and applications are now being accepted. Since June 15th, DHS has made important clarifications as to the eligibility requirements and benefits available through DACA.
It is important to get this one right. On account of the extensive requirements for documentary evidence and the strict guidelines for eligibility—especially for those with criminal histories, or any exits from the United States during the past five years—potential applicants are well advised to retain a knowledgeable and experienced immigration attorney in order to obtain this new relief and to ensure success.
