US Immigration Lawyer – Get the Help You Deserve
The recent executive order delaying the deportation of and granting work permits to DREAM Act-eligible recipients is great news for young immigrants. While the change will temporarily stop the deportation of about 800,000 young immigrants for approximately two years, it is strongly recommended that DREAMers get legal representation. An experienced immigration lawyer can evaluate your personal situation to determine if you qualify for a work permit or a “deferred action,” and can also help you file any necessary paperwork.
According to the Department of Homeland Security, if you are not currently in removal proceedings, you may be eligible for a work permit and deferred action for two years (subject to renewal) if:
- You are under the age of 30
- You came to the U.S. when you were under the age of 16
- You’ve lived in the U.S. for at least five consecutive years
- You are currently in school, have graduated from high school or have obtained a GED
- You are an honorably discharged veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard or Armed Forces
- You have NOT been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or do not pose a threat to national security or public safety.
If you are currently in removal proceedings but are not yet subject to a final order of removal, you may still qualify for a “deferred action” if you meet the above criteria. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will grant deferred actions on a case-by-case basis and has also been ordered to immediately start deferring action against individuals who meet the above criteria and whose cases are pending.
This landmark order could impact your life in a significant way.
