Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

AILA ALERT: DREAMers NOT currently in Deportation Proceedings should NOT apply affirmatively for Deferred Action

Rate this Entry

Thankfully, the good people at AILA are alerting DREAMers that are not currently in removal (deportation) proceedings to hold off on registering under the new deferred action program


This is a smart and cautious move.  At this time we have no idea how the administration will implement the new policy memorandum.  If past implementation of the Morton memo is any indication of future results, very few people will benefit from deferred action.


If you are currently in proceedings there is nothing to lose by requesting deferred action, as it will potentially stave off removal.


What concerns me the most is that the announced policy in effect creates a database of children that do not have valid immigration status.  There is no way of knowing how this administration, or future administrations will utilize this information should deferred action be denied.  A conceivable result to registration is the immediate institution of removal proceedings, which will stop time for cancellation of removal eligibility.  Moreover, there are no guarantees that should deferred action be granted it will ultimately be extended at the end of the two-year period.  


Needless to say, I have a really bad feeling about this, as I simply do not trust this President.


I REALLY hope I'm wrong.


Prove me wrong Mr. President.

    The complete ALERT by AILA as posted on their website is this:

    DREAMers should NOT apply affirmatively for Deferred Action at this time. USCIS and ICE has stated that they will begin accepting affirmative applications by mid-August--stay tuned to this page for information about when this affirmative process will be available.

    Not at this time, AILA said, because the process is not yet in place.
