There are not enough words to express the excitement and relief that President Obama’s announcement on June 15th regarding administrative relief for undocumented immigrant youth brought to our communities.
The new policy states that DREAM Act eligible youth, who are currently in deportation procedures, will be able to apply for deferred action and possibly work permits. Although this is NOT a pathway to citizenship, it is a HUGE step in our battle for immigration reform and we need to be fully informed about how to benefit from it.
Since there has been much confusion and uncertainty about the new policy, FLIC and SWER want to provide access to information and also ALERT all DREAMers in Florida and their families about possible scams by unscrupulous notarios and lawyers.
The new policy will not be released until 60 days after the announcement, approximately August 15th, and no one should file applications before that date.
