Deferred Action in Immigration Law: The Next Generation

Deferred Action in Immigration Law: The Next Generation

"Breaking with its tradition of silence and informality, early signs show that DHS will keep open channels of communication with stakeholders about how the deferred action program for certain young people will operate. DHS has only 60 days to implement the new program, and for this reason will use a limited set of tools to create a design specific to the individuals eligible. Beyond this 60-day period and program however, DHS should take a serious look at the deferred action program in the long run. Below are my personal thoughts on the deferred action program at large and recommendations for the next generation of the program." - Prof. Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia, June 28, 2012.
