With the Dream Act/Deferred Action will someone be able to travel within the US?

Los Fresnos, TX |

My cousin has been accepted to this, but is nervous of getting out of his current state, He is in Alabama and wants to travel to Texas to seek opportunities, is that fine? He won't be stooped at the check point?

Yes. He can travel within the USA and relocate if he desires to do so. If he does relocate he will need to change his address with the USCIS.

He can travel ithin the U.S. Being granted deferred action means that the government will not take adverse action against the individual even though a ground (for removal) exists.
