2014 Presidential Action Email #1

November 21, 2014

Dear Friends,
I am sure you are all aware that last night President Barack Obama announced and has already begun to put into place many important changes to policy and procedure in the administration and enforcement of immigration laws. Because there are so many aspects of these changes, I plan to send an email each day, Monday through Friday, as long as there are important aspects of these changes that you should know. Some will relate to individuals, some to families, some to employees and employers.

That being said, please email our new legal assistant, Dawn Davide, at
ddavide@jeriflynn.com if you would like to be omitted from
1) this particular listserve , or
2) from all further listserves from www.jeriflynn.com.

Si Usted quiere recibir estos correos electronicos en Espanol, por favor diga a Dawn
Davide a ddavide@jeriflynn.com lo mas pronto posible.


Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA):

As long as you were under 16 when you entered the United States, you can apply for DACA.
You must have been continuously present in the United States since January 1, 2010, rather than June 15, 2007.
You will get employment authorization for a three-year period. It will be several months before an eligible person can apply for DACA under this provision.

Deferred Action for Parents of U.S. Citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents:

Any undocumented individual living in the United States who is the parent of a U.S.
citizen or lawful permanent resident on November 21, 2014.

This allows parents to request deferred action and employment authorization if they:
1) Have continuous resided in the United States since January 1, 2010 and
2) Are the parents of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident born on or before November 20, 2014.

It will be at least six months before an eligible parent can apply for deferred action under this provision.
