Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – Implementation Date Set for August 15
Earlier today, the Department of Homeland Security posted a release reinstating that USCIS will be ready to implement the deferred action for childhood arrivals process on August 15. On June 15, Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security, announced that certain young people who came to the U.S. as children and meet key guidelines may be eligible to receive deferred action. The process by which such candidates can request consideration for deferred action is currently being finalized by USCIS.
USCIS states that it intends to make all forms, instructions and other relevant information and tools related to deferred action for childhood arrivals ready for the public on August 15, 2012. The federal agency will then immediately begin accepting requests for consideration.
