Deferred Action for Dreamers – 10 Reasons Why It Is Best
By: Harlan York
November 10, 2013

Like you – we as immigration lawyers – continue to hold our breath that Congress will finally act to change the current immigration law.

Meanwhile there are still Two Million people who should consider Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“Dreamers”).

  1. Deferred Action may not be a green card, but it is the best option for many of you.
  2. You get a renewable 2 year work permit.
  3. You may be able to travel to foreign countries based on Deferred Action.
  4. Most states will give you a driver’s license if you are granted Deferred Action.
  5. With Deferred Action,  you can get a  Social Security card.
  6. With a Social Security card, a driver’s license and Deferred Action based work permit, you have much better access to a good job.
  7. Deferred Action is protection from deportation.
  8. Parents of children with Deferred Action have been able to get their pending deportation cases closed in many cases, with the help of top immigration lawyers.
  9. Certain states offer lower tuition to college for Deferred Action holders.
  10. Until folks in Washington DC do something about immigration reform, Deferred Action protects and improves the lives of millions. Yet only a little more than half a million immigrants have applied.

NOTE:  You can be over 31.  Only immigrants 31 years old or older on June 15, 2012 cannot apply.

Please do NOT try to apply for Deferred Action yourself.

Look for the best immigration attorney available.

This is your life.

I took on a new case this year for a client who was “advised” by an agency that she was very educated and  intelligent and thus could file for Deferred Action without an immigration attorney.

She listened to these people.  I have no idea who they were or why they said this to her.

As a result, she lost a year of being able to work, drive and open a bank account lawfully.

A Deferred Action application – when prepared properly – can be approved in months.
