The New Immigration Status for Young People

The government has announced an “amnesty” for young people, via a program called deferred action. Here’s my latest video where I explain the process.

Basically, the immigration program is for people 30 years old and younger, who came to the USA before the age of 16 and have lived here for at least 5 years. There are other requirements, as well, and each case will be decided based on its own merit. Potential applicants can begin collecting evidence in order to submit it when the government opens the application period.
