As most of you know, President Obama announced in June of this year that those who entered the country at a young age may qualify for a limited “deferred action” and work permits. USCIS had indicated that they would not have any further information until August 15th. On August 15th, DREAMers who qualify may be able to apply for this deferred Action.
USCIS has recently released an FAQ that would help those who may qualify understand who will qualify and how to qualify.
This FAQ sheet can be found here: USCIS FAQ ON DEFERRED ACTION
For those who would almost qualify but have dropped out of school for one reason or another, it is highly recommended that you begin going to school for your GED.
