Deferred Action

In June of 2012, Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain young people who were brought to the United States as young children, do not present a risk to national security or public safety, and meet several key criteria would be considered for relief from removal from the country or from entering into removal proceedings by use of deferred action.

On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced that a similar program would be made available to the parents of United States citizens and lawful permanent residents.
