Immigration Relief for American Families
Under President Obama’s executive order, people who came to the United States at a young age and meet certain requirements will be able to come forward to apply under the new guidelines of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA has already allowed more than half a million young people to continue their contributions to our country without the fear of deportation. NCLR will continue working with our community to assist individuals in applying for DACA and to prepare parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents who are eligible to apply for deferred action under the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) guidelines when that application period begins in May 2015.
NCLR will also push back on any attempts to roll back immigration relief for American families. Our country should not be denied the benefits that this legitimate presidential action will achieve. It will improve our national security by having people come out of the shadows and go through background checks. It will strengthen our economy by having immigrants who are working do so legally, contributing more taxes, and preventing bad employers from gaming the system. And it will improve our social fabric by bringing stability to millions of American families who have lived in fear of losing a loved one.
