What if I apply for deferred action and my application is denied?


Deferred action is completely discretionary. This means that the decision in each case is up to the authorities and there is no appeal process.

Currently, the Department of Homeland Security says that people who are denied deferred action will NOT be placed in deportation proceedings UNLESS they have a prior criminal conviction, they committed fraud in making their deferred action request, or they are a threat to national security.
