DEFERRED ACTION AND DREAM ACT
CHICAGO IMMIGRATION LAWYERS, COMMITTED TO YOUR BEST INTERESTS
As an undocumented immigrant in the United States, the fear that is likely at the forefront of your mind at all times is deportation. Thankfully, the Obama administration made legal the DREAM Act in 2012, which provides a legal avenue for eligible individuals to gain temporary residency in the U.S. for two years (which may be renewed for an additional amount of time) in order to obtain work or study authorization. The intention is that these people can gain access to great opportunities and make positive contributions to society.
