Bloggings: DHS Announces DeferredAction Process for Young People Who Are Low Enforcement Priorities, By: Danielle Beach-Oswald

Rate this Entry

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today announced that effective immediately, 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 will be considered for relief from removal from the country or from entering into removal proceedings. Those who demonstrate that they meet the criteria will be eligible to receive deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and will be eligible to apply for work authorization.


"Our nation's immigration laws must be enforced in a firm and sensible manner," said Secretary Napolitano. "But they are not designed to be blindly enforced without consideration given to the individual circumstances of each case. Nor are they designed to remove productive young people to countries where they may not have lived or even speak the language. Discretion, which is used in so many other areas, is especially justified here."


This memorandum outlines the criteria for consideration. The criteria includes individuals who are age fifteen or over and:


        came tothe United States under the age of sixteen;


        have continuously resided in the United States for at least five years preceding the date of the Secretary's memorandum and are present in the United Stateson the date of the Secretary's memorandum;


        are currently in school, have graduated from high school, have obtained a general education development certificate, or are honorably discharged veterans of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States;


        have not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety; and


        are not above the age of thirty.


While this guidance takes effect immediately, USCIS and ICE expect to begin implementation of the application processes within sixty days. In the meantime, individuals seeking more information on the new policy should visit USCIS's website (at www.uscis.gov),ICE's website (at www.ice.gov),or DHS's website (at www.dhs.gov).Beginning Monday, individuals can also call USCIS' hotline at1-800-375-5283 or ICE's hotline at 1-888-351-4024 during business hours with questions or to request more information on the forthcoming process.

    hey guy i have an important question about immigration, I hope no to get any obscene or hateful messages, Does a Minor or under age accrued ULP (Unlawful Presence) ??? My wife came to US when 16yrs same year she filed TPS and was TPS granted before her 18 yrs old. in sep 17,2010 she left to her home country Because her mother Died, she was granted to humanitarian "Advance parole", I think . I-131 or I-94 not sure. She came back a week later after the burial. She came into U.S with Advance parole and Inspected by port officer and paroled or admitted to U.S for 364 days ( Not a year) but she was on TPS status for 18 months so she has 12 month left. ..My question is Does she accumulate ULP when minor? and if she did it was less than a year( 180-364 days)...
