I am 20 years old and have been in the US for 16 years. Is there a deadline to apply for the DREAM act?
Please understand that there is no DREAM ACT - that is legislation that has been proposed numerous times and defeated in Congress.
We do have the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals - DACA - who some refer to Dreamers -- it appears that you do qualify for DACA. Why apply now or as soon as possible? If we have comprehensive immigration reform and we pray we will, many people will be applying. If you have applied for DACA and even better if you have been granted DACA, you will be at the front of the line. This is not legal advise - it is merely my opinion. With DACA, your biometrics - fingerprints will be on file, I think you will be at the front of the line - Just my opinion... nothing more.
