First Deferred Action Approved

A couple of days ago we received our first I-821d approval notice for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. Surprisingly it only took U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) 1.5 month to process and approve the I-821d and the jointly filed work authorization for our client.

Deferred action in its simplest form is to defer the removal or deportation on an individual who may be in the United States unlawfully. Instead of removing that individual from the United States, that individual is permitted to remain in the United States under the authorization of the secretary of DHS and for some work authorization. However, contrary to media reports, deferred action does not grant an individual "status" in the United States but permits an approved applicant to remain in the United States.
