Deferred Action for DREAMers Update!

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Alejandro Mayorkas and other senior Department of Homeland Security officials held a conference call on August 3, 2012 and discussed updates on the deferred action process. Director Mayorkas confirmed that new forms for applying for deferred action benefits, which include employment authorization and relief from deportation for certain undocumented individuals, will be made available on August 15, 2012.

Director Mayorkas cautioned the public against notario fraud, and advised individuals seeking more information to visit the Deferred Action page on the USCIS website. Clarification was also given with regard to the types of evidence that will be accepted,  how criminal history will be reviewed, and the adjudication process.
