DHS to Grant Reprieve, Work Permits to DREAMers

"President Barack Obama said Friday that his administration would let many young [unauthorized] immigrants legally live and work in the U.S., sidestepping Congress after years of stalemate over the nation's immigration policy.  The Obama administration says it won't deport many younger [unauthorized] immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, sidestepping Congress after years of stalemate over the nation's immigration policy.  Under the new rules, an estimated 800,000 young people brought to the U.S. as children could apply for work permits and enjoy a safe haven from deportation." - Wall Street Journal, June 15, 2012.
