Deferred Action

 

The story in the news clip involved one of our clients who ultimately received Deferred Action. He actually received Deferred Action under a different mechanism than the one that is widespread today. While we cannot guarantee the same result in every case; this case illustrates how hard we work on behalf of our clients.


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a new memorandum explaining how certain young people who:

  • do not present a risk to national security or public safety,
  • and meet specified criteria,

will be eligible to receive deferred action for two years(subject to renewal)and also apply for work authorization.

What Is Deferred Action?

.  Deferred action is a temporary decision not to pursue enforcement against a person for a specific period.

However, a grant of deferred action does not award lawful immigration status, alter an individual’s existing immigration status, or provide them a path to citizenship. While deferred action does not cure any prior or subsequent period of unlawful presence, the time in deferred action status is considered a ‘period of stay’ that has been authorized by the Department of Homeland Security.

All applicants must pass a background check before they can receive deferred action.
