DHS Outlines Deferred Action Process for DREAMers

As many are aware, on June 15, 2012, President Obama, through an executive order, paved the way for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children to remain here temporarily without fear of deportation through the deferred action process.  On August 3, 2012, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) provided additional information and resources regarding this deferred action for childhood arrivals, including information on when applications will be accepted, guidelines on who is eligible, filing information, etc.
