Deferred Action Information

Click here for the North Carolina Justice Center's factsheet on Deferred Action for Immigrant Youth, available in English and coming soon in Spanish..

US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) -- both within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) -- are providing up to date information on the Deferred Action for Young Immigrants announcement on their websites. Both websites have a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section. Here are the links:

ICE:

The ICE website provides a Spanish language version of the FAQs page.

We highly recommend that advocates read over the FAQs pages in addition to reading the original June 15, 2012 memo.
