    Answered . If your daughters are not in removal proceedings at the present time applying for deferred action may not be a good idea. Note that deferred action will defer removal (deportation) for two years and will not provide legal status. However, it will allow your daughters to file for employment authorization. Your younger daughter is too young to work within the 2 year period so this filing may not provide any benefits to her. Please consult with an Immigration attorney before filing to discuss risks and benefits of this program.
