Last month, Homeland Security announced that, effective immediately, individuals under the age of 30 who were brought to the United States as children may be eligible to be exempt from removal proceedings.
Undocumented immigrants must have verifiable documents proving:
- They came to the U.S. before the age of 16;
- They have lived in the U.S. for five continuous years prior to June 15, 2012 and were in the U.S. on that date;
- They are in school, high school graduates, have a general education development certificate, or are honorably discharged veterans from the U.S. Armed Forces or Coast Guard;
- They are not convicted felons, do not have multiple misdemeanor offenses, do not have a significant offense, or are not considered a threat to public and national security;
- They are younger than 30 years-old.
