Romney Announces that if Elected, He Will Not Revoke Defferred Action Status from DREAMers

October 2, 2012

On August 15, 2012, the government starting taking cases for immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, and who meet certain criteria to qualify for a two-year protection from deportation, as well as possibly a work permit and a driver’s license (depending on the state). While commonly known as DREAM cases, the program is actually called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (D.A.C.A.).

One of the most common questions we have received from our D.A.C.A. clients is what happens if Romney wins the presidential election? Will he revoke our D.A.C.A. status? I have to admit, it’s a great question … and hopefully now we have an answer. Here is the article from U.S.A. Today:

As always, I always take everything a politician says with a grain of salt. But hopefully this is a step in the right direction.
