What is Administrative Relief?

A:

stop.pngAdministrative Relief is a program President Obama has enacted to protect certain groups of immigrants from unfair deportation, and give some of them access to work permits. 

It is an expansion of a program that has been around for a long time, called Deferred Action.   

A grant of deferred action under this program is temporary – it is only good for 3 years.  After that, you may be able to renew.  It is not a pathway to getting a green card or U.S. citizenship.

Please, post what are your suggestions for families that have American children and pay taxes and are here for more than 15 years working, without any help from the government.
