Get a FREE CONSULTATION with Immigration Lawyer Pecchia concerning the action President Obama took on November 20, 2014, to fix a broken immigration system by issuing executive actions and a challenge to the Republican Congress to reform the country’s immigration laws.  New DAPA and DACA benefits (See below.) could impact up to an estimated 5.2 million people in the U.S.—with 1.5 million in California—according to The Migration Policy Institute. Of those eligible, an estimated 900,000 live in Southern California. The Pew Research Center estimates that California’s 2.5 million unauthorized immigrant population is among the states where at least half of unauthorized immigrants are now eligible for relief under new or existing programs.

Qualify For Relief Under President Obama’s Immigration Executive Actions

The two principal actions (There are others not addressed here.) that at will impact the most people are: creation of a new Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) program and grant and expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.  Those two forms of temporary relief are:

1.  Under the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA), relief from deportation, as well as work authorization, to eligible, unauthorized parents of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents who meet certain criteria, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services expects that applications will be ready for DACA applicants within 180  days following President Obama’s November  20, 2014 announcement, or March . The filing fee is expected to be $465.

2.  Under the Deferred Action For Parental Childhood Arrivals (DACA), relief from deportation and work authorization to qualified young adults who were brought to the United States as Children. It is an extension and expansion of the previous DACA plan.

The Administration modified the DACA program by eliminating the age ceiling and making individuals who began residing here before January 1, 2010 eligible. Previously, applicants needed to be under the age of 31 on June 15, 2012, and to have resided here continuously since June 15, 2007. Moreover, the Administration announced that DACA grants and accompanying employment authorization will, as of November 24, 2014, last three years instead of two.  U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services expects that applications will be ready for DACA applicants within 90 days following President Obama’s November 20, 2014 announcement.  The filing fee is expected to be $465.
