Following the recent rhetoric on the Republican platform, many
undocumented youth will be sending their DACA application after the
presidential elections.  Fearing that filing
an application to Deferred Action and coming out as undocumented to immigration
authorities might lead to their deportation, some will not be pursuing Obama's policy
right away.  An article by New
America Media
states that many undocumented immigrants postponing
applications want to be sure first that President Obama gets re-elected. That
would provide them some assurance the deferred action program will not be
discontinued were he to lose, thus placing them and their families in jeopardy
of being deported. Let us know your thoughts.
