    Answered . NOT Dream ACT!! Deferred Action for Child-hood Arrivals (DACA). See below...
    • Be 15-30 years old, and have entered before age 16
    • Have been present in the U.S. for 5 years as of June 15, 2012
    • Have maintained continuous residence
    • Have not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor or multiple minor misdemeanors
    • Be currently in school, graduated or have a GED, or is an honorably discharged veteran
    • The deferred action offer will be available to those in proceedings, as well as to those who apply affirmatively.
    GOOD LUCK!!

    Answered . There is a dream act in the bill introduced in Congress. Who can apply will depend on the final language of the bill when it passes.

    The bills introduced in Congress are not law yet. Anyone who promises you immigration reform benefits or advises you on whether you qualify is likely to have two goals in mind: 1) get your money and 2) get you deported so they can keep your money. DO NOT fall for promises by notarios or unscrupulous attorneys.

    Answered . I agree with the previous answer and will add that Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is the Administration's interpretation and execution of existing law (there is no Dream Act). Also, DACA is discretionary meaning meeting the qualifications should but does not necessarily guarantee approval. Consult with a qualified immigration attorney before applying.
