If you or a family member came to the United States as a 15 year old or younger, and you or the person is 30 years or younger, contact our law firm to apply for your deferred deportation action.
Why apply for the deferred deportation action?
The biggest benefits include 1) California driver’s license, 2) work permit and 3) legal stay in the United States. According to the memo prepared by Janet Napoliano, Secretary of Homeland Security, the memo states, “For individuals who are granted deferred action by either ICE or USCIS, USCIS shall accept applications to determine whether these individuals qualify for work authorization during this period of deferred action.” In the past, undocumented immigrations could not apply for a work permit unless your status was adjusted through a legal mean. Now, it sounds possible.
Requirements to qualify?
There is a set of criteria you must meet in order to qualify for the deferred action.
1) You came to the United States under the age of sixteen;
2) You have lived in the United States continuously for at least five years preceding June 15, 2012 and are still in the United States on June 15, 2012
3) You are currently in school, have graduated from high school, have obtained a GED, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States.
4) You have not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety; and are not above the age of thirty.
You must hurry if you want to apply for this deferred deportation action as it may be a temporary resolution for the November election. Also, do not worry, thinking the government is trying to trick you by making undocumented immigrants to come forward. USCIS and ICE have specifically mentioned during their interview that your information will not be used against you.
