Help for immigrants seeking deferred action – MinnLawyer Blog

The Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota will conduct a work shop on the topic of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, on Saturday, Oct. 27 at 1 p.m. at Normandale Community College in Bloomington.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is the new immigration policy created June 15 by President Barack Obama. It creates an affirmative application process for undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. before the age of 16 and who were not over the age of 30 on June 15 to receive both protection from deportation and Immigration authorization to obtain employment. More information about the program can be found at ilcm.org.

Deferred action is open to persons of all nationalities who meet the criteria listed here. ILCM’s income eligibility requirements are listed here.

Facebook users can Like the ILCM and spread the word that way.

Finally, ILCM also has opened a special toll free deferred action screening hotline for persons living anywhere in Minnesota, at 1-800-223-1368. This is especially helpful for those who live outside of the Metro area. Call Fridays from 4 to 6 p.m. and ILCM will determine whether you meet their financial guidelines and qualify for deferred action.
