      Ah, implenting an Act of Congress. Please note that the DREAM Act and other amnesties have been rejected by Congress.

        What the new policy IS:
        The Obama Administration announced the creation of a high-level working group made
        up of Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice officials who are to
        do the following:
        ? Review all cases already pending before the immigration courts. Those that are
        considered “low priority” may be administratively closed. Those that are
        considered a “high priority” will be prosecuted more aggressively.
        ? There are no rules or guarantees that a particular type of case will be considered
        a “low” or “high” priority. Recent guidelines are helpful, but no one can tell you if
        your case is a low priority--only immigration authorities will make that decision.
        ? In the future, immigration authorities will review the cases people before they are
        placed in removal proceedings. Those that are “low priority” may not be referred
        to the immigration court.
        ? Create department-wide guidance to help USCIS, CBP, and ICE agents and
        officers make better, more consistent decisions about who to place in removal
        proceedings.
        ? Issue guidance on providing discretion in compelling cases for persons who
        already have a final order of removal.
        In other words, the August 18
        th
        announcement was preliminary and nothing has been
        implemented yet. Any details about how the review process will work, what cases will
        be considered low priority or how to have a particular case considered have not been
        decided.
        The best course of action is to consult an immigration lawyer or accredited
        representative, not to take action because a friend, neighbor or coworker
        encourages you to act.
