Deferred Action

What It Does:

  • This new action stops the removal of certain qualified young people and grants them the opportunity to stay in the United States without fear of removal.
  • Grants employment authorization if the individual can demonstrate an economic necessity for employment.

What It Doesn't Do:

  • Since it is only a form of prosecutorial discretion (the government deciding not to prosecute in this case), it does not grant "legal status."
  • It is not a visa status
  • It is not a permanent fix and does not grant permanent legal status to anyone
  • It does not lead to a path to citizenship

  • Have five years of continuous residence before June 15, 2012 and been physically present on that date
