What DREAMers Need to Know! Deferred Action for Certain Undocumented Immigrant Youth
Not Legal Advice! The information in this session is general. We will not be able to address specific or personal questions in this session. Please talk to an immigration attorney about personal concerns. © 2012 The Advocates for Human Rights

BEWARE of immigration consultants sometimes known as “notarios.” Before you pay anyone to file your papers, make sure they are licensed to practice law or accredited by the Board of Immigration Appeals. WARNING! © 2012 The Advocates for Human Rights
What did the Deferred Action Announcement Say? The announcement explained how, in the exercise of prosecutorial discretion, DHS should enforce US immigration laws against certain young people who were brought to the US as children and know only this country as home. © 2012 The Advocates for Human Rights
Is this the DREAM Act? No. The DREAM Act is legislation that would provide a path to permanent residence status for certain young people who have grown up in the United States but are unable to work, join the military, or attain higher education because of our current immigration laws. © 2012 The Advocates for Human Rights
Why is this needed? U.S. law provides no way for most undocumented people to gain lawful immigration status. © 2012 The Advocates for Human Rights

Frequently Asked Questions © 2012 The Advocates for Human Rights

What if I was ordered removed but have not left the US? If you have a final order of removal but otherwise meet all of the Deferred Action requirements, you may still be eligible. Contact an attorney! © 2012 The Advocates for Human Rights
What if I have a criminal record? A “conviction” is a legal term. You may have a conviction even if you didn’t go to jail or didn’t have a jury trial. Find out before you file any papers with DHS! If DHS finds you ineligible due to criminal history, you may be subject to removal. Don’t count yourself out. See an immigration attorney before deciding what to do. © 2012 The Advocates for Human Rights
