Big news for DREAMers from the Obama Administration

President Obama announced today that young undocumented immigrants would be eligible for relief from deportation and would be eligible to apply for work permits.  Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitiano announced the details on the DHS home page: http://www.dhs.gov/ynews/releases/20120612-napolitano-announces-deferred-action-process-for-young-people.shtm
