Just to clarify -- Approval for Deferred Action does NOT mean you get a "green card." You will receive employment authorization valid for two years with which you may obtain a valid social security number and obtain lawful work. However, it is not a grant of residency which is what a 'green card' signifies. Hopefully, we will get some sort of immigration reform soon so that DREAMers like you will have a path toward lawful permanent residency and citizenship.
