THE ImmigrationArtVideo CHANNEL on YouTube: Deferred Action / Obama DREAMer Program Started 8/15/2012

Congress never passed the DREAM Act. We've been waiting over a decade now. So, President Obama has taken action -- he has ordered the USCIS to use the rules currently on the books to help those who would have otherwise qualified for the DREAM Act. The action ordered by President Obama is called "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" (DACA). Here at Immigration Art, we call it the "Deferred Action / Obama DREAMer Program"

This video explains the President's plan, points out the benefits, explores the risks, and asks that you proceed with caution under the President's plan.The ImmigrationArtVideo Channel: Deferred Action / Obama DREAMer Program

That's how the Huffington Post summarizes statements made by Department of Homeland Security head, Janet Napolitano, last week about the new Obama Administration policy that reevaluates pending deportation cases to focus on aliens convicted of crimes. Of course, when immigration law sets the bar so low for defining an "aggravated felony" (including some actual misdemeanors with no active jail time) it begs the question who the government will consider a true "criminal" who is a danger to society.
