Many individuals who are residing and working in this country without proper documentation are hopeful that they can receive a grant of “deferred action” status, which will allow such residents to stay in the U.S. temporarily without fear of prosecution related to past immigration violations related to entering the U.S.
Those individuals are often looking for places to find more information about the new deferred action program, as well as government contacts who can help them understand the process for seeking deferred actions status.
For published information, interested individuals can check out:
- The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) page on deferred action;
- The Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) page on deferred action; or
- The Immigration and Customes Enforcement(“ICE”) page on deferred action.
To speak with a person in the government who can explain the deferred action process and answer further questions, interested individuals can call the ICE hotline at (888) 351-4024 or the USCIS hotline at (800) 375-5283.
