Will working under a false Social Security number affect my future immigration status or implication for "deferred action"?

i came to the US on a Visa when i was 11 months, worked with a false SSN but did taxes with my iTIN. i have not worked under that SSN for about a year now. I'm an AB540 student, will this affect my deferred action application?

You should be okay. The only thing I would caution you on is if you are using someone else's social, there could be identity theft implications. You should talk to an attorney before applying for anything to review your documents.

You should be fine, but I would consult with an attorney regarding all the specifics of your case. It is possible you have not taken into consideration things which can impact your application; which is why I would recommend going through a licensed attorney.
