Beyond taking them off the deportation list, the action also allowed many young immigrants to work legally. Action Obama took late last year allows more young immigrants here illegally to apply, beginning Feb. 18, for three years of deportation relief and work permits. It also would allow parents of U.S. citizen and legal resident children to apply for similar benefits, known as DAPA.
