Immigrants who were brought to the United States before the age of 16, who have lived here for at least five years, are in school, have a high school diploma or GED, or were honorably discharged from the military and are younger than 30 are eligible for the “deferred action”. In addition to deferred action on deportation, many young illegal immigrants would be eligible for work permits.
Verifiable documentation must be provided, and those with felonies or extensive criminal records are not eligible. So start collecting documents now, school records, bills and other records from the past 5 years and more. Watch our video for details.
