If i apply for the dream act/ deffered action and dont get accepted can i get deported?

I am debating whether I should still apply or not because i do not remember if i put that or not.

You false claim to citizenship does not bar you from applying for DACA. DHS will evaluate your petition and make a decision based on many factors. False claims to citizenship is not a good thing; but for DACA purposes, it is not a bar.

I agree with my colleague.

It will likely not get you deported. We have been told that information that DACA applicants provide will not be used against themselves or their family members unless they are a fugitive, or something very serious, for example.

You should consider scheduling a consultation to learn further.
