Government to Give Work Permits and Legal Status to Certain Undocumented Immigrants

Yesterday, the President announced that the government is going to stop deporting certain young people and to give them quasi-legal status in the U.S. [caption id="attachment_799" align="alignright" width="150"] Image courtesy of FreeDigitalPhotos.net[/caption]The new rule, effective immediately applies to most undocumented individuals under age 30 who have lived in the U.S. for at least 5 years.The new status is called "deferred action" and enables a person to get a work permit, which is the key to getting a social security number and work permit.Our law firm is already receiving many inquiries about this, and applicants can make requests for this status right now. This new rule is similar to the proposed Dream Act, but without all the rules, forms and requirements.__________________________________________________________________________________________________About the author: Bruce Coane is an attorney who specializes in labor and employment law and immigration law, with offices in Florida and Texas.
