Undocumented Immigrants Facing Uncertain Future Under Deferred Action For Child Arrivals

More than 1.7 million undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children could be subject for deportation in 2013.

Washington D.C. - The November election could very well determine, if those undocumented immigrants seeking consideration after August 15, for deferred action for early arrivals as children to the U.S. can be deported. Thousands of DREAMers nationwide began applying for deferred action with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
The Obama administration and Homeland Security Department enacted an administrative policy allowing eligible DREAMERs to apply for deferred action and pay fees to get federal work permits and legal paper work to apply for state licenses. The Obama deferred action policy is only good after the November election, if President Barack H. Obama (D-IL) gets re-elected in 2012.
Republican Mitt Romney, who is trying to oust Obama from office is expected to void Obama's deferred action policy, if elected. Romney vowed to enforce existing immigration laws that will lead to massive deportations of undocumented immigrants and their children who were not born in the U.S. 
Those DREAMers applying today for deferred action will most likely be affected and face deportation proceedings in the near future. Governor Romney has not confirmed publicly, if he would keep Obama's deferred action policy when elected.
