Hope for New Immigration Policy; Are You Eligible for Deferred Action?

Friday, August 9th, 2013
 
By Ben Ros
Recent support in Washington for the Senate immigration bill has many looking forward to comprehensive immigration reform. For many, however, help is already here: since the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) bill passed last year, millions have become eligible for protection from deportation. Catholic Charities can help you find out if you are eligible for deferred action or prepare for possible new reforms.

Movers and shakers across religious and political spectrums are offering the issue their support. This week Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg joins His Eminence, Timothy Michael Cardinal Dolan and Msgr. Kevin Sullivan (proponents of the Catholic community’s long-standing pro-immigrant stance) in working to reform immigration policy.

You may be eligible for deferred action if you:

  • Have come to the United States under the age of 16 and not be above the age of 30.
  • Have resided in the United States continuously for at least five years before June 15, 2012, and have been present in the United States as of June 15, 2012.
  • Be in school, have graduated from high school, have obtained a GED certificate or be honorably discharged veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States.
  • Have not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense or multiple mi
    sdemeanor offenses, or otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.

Call the New York State New Americans Hotline: 1 (800) 566-7636 — open Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. — to speak with someone who can help you through the process or visit the USCIS website to learn more.
