In the United States today, there are more than 36 million foreign-born persons, 11 million or more of whom are estimated to be undocumented. These numbers highlight the need for comprehensive immigration reform. They also indicate that the nation’s next CIR program will be the most ambitious immigration initiative in its history, putting millions on a path to U.S. citizenship.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
On June 15, 2012, DHS announced that certain young people who entered the U.S. before age 16 will no longer be removed from the United States. Qualified individuals will be granted “deferred action” and be eligible for a work permit. USCIS has stated that it will make all forms and instructions available on August 15, 2012, and that it will not accept any application for deferred action until August 15, 2012.
