What is President Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents?

////What is President Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents?
On November 20, 201, President Obama signed an executive action to protect certain two types of illegal immigrants from deportation:

  1. Parents of citizens, or green card holders, who have been in the country for more than five years; and
  2. Younger immigrants who entered the U.S. before they were 16 and have been in the country for more than five years.

Today, I want to talk about Deferred Action for Parents.

Do you Qualify for Deferred Action for Parental Accountability?

In order to be eligible for Deferred Action for Parents you must:

  1. Have continuously lived in the U. S. since January 1, 2010;
  2. Have a U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident child born on or before November 20, 2014;
  3. Were in the U.S. on November 20, 2014, without lawful status; and
  4. Have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, three or more misdemeanors, and are not a threat to national security or public safety.
  5. You will also have to complete a background check. You must discuss this with a qualified New Jersey immigration attorney. Before you apply, be certain that you qualify!

If you qualify, you should absolutely apply:

  • Doesn’t’ matter if you were already deported, are in removal proceedings, or if you aren’t on Immigration’s radar.  If you qualify you get the benefits.
  • This is you opportunity to come out of the shadows and start to live a normal life without fear of imminent deportation.  Take this opportunity.  Don’t wait until the Republicans try to stop the program.
  • You can use DACA to get permanent status, and I will discuss that in a later video.  Don’t let this opportunity pass you by

How Soon Can I Apply for Deferred Action for Parental Accountability?

Applications for Deferred Action of Parents may be submitted 180 days after November 20, 2014 – The date that the immigration measure was announced. That means that on Wednesday May 19, 2015 is the first day you can apply for this program.  Don’t be a victim of Immigration Fraud!
