Supreme Court Decision: Deferred Action for Parents



News Flash: The US Supreme Court announced a decision today  on the deferred action for parents (DAPA) program.  The court reached a deadlock on this issue.  The court will leave in place the lower court decision that blocks the deferred action program for undocumented (sometimes called illegal) parents of US citizen and permanent resident children. For more information on the court decision see  DAPA Court Decision.

The earlier, two-year Deferred Action program for undocumented children who entered the US before their 16th birthday and who have lived in the US since June 15, 2007, is still available for those who qualify.  For more information on this program see Two-Year Deferred Action.
