Corrected Practice Advisory on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
August 13, 2012
Washington, D.C.— The Legal Action Center (LAC) has issued a corrected Practice Advisory, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The August 10, 2012 version erroneously linked to the current Form I-765 (Application for Employment Authorization) and advised that this form should be filed concurrently with the deferred action application. However, USCIS has said not to use the current form. USCIS expects to make available a new employment authorization application form on August 15, 2012.
This Practice Advisory analyzes DHS guidance regarding the eligibility criteria and application process for the Obama administration’s new initiative to grant deferred action to certain individuals who came to the United States as children. It also offers strategic advice for attorneys representing individuals who may qualify for deferred action under this initiative. The LAC issued this advisory jointly with the American Immigration Lawyers Association and the National Immigration Project of the National Lawyers Guild.
