Deferred action refers to the action when deportation is suspended. The DREAM Act (which was made legal in 2012 by President Barack Obama) protects individuals in specific circumstances from being deported by ordering deferred action. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) often defers the removal of individuals who meet these specific eligibility factors. In the past, the threat of deportation was constantly concerning to immigrants in the country, but thanks to the Dream Act, this may no longer be a concern.
The qualifications that must be met for eligibility include the following:
- You must be a non-citizen between the ages of 14 and 31
- You must have been in the U.S. for at least five years
- You must have arrived in the U.S. before you turned 16
- You must have obtained a GED, graduated high school, or served in the military
- You must pass a background check
