30 year-olds Don’t Despair, Deferred Action Still Within Reach

Contributed by Aaron Hall


When Department of Homeland Secretary (DHS) Napolitano announced the new deferred action program on June 15, 2012, it was announced that one of the requirements for eligibility would be that applicants “are not above the age of thirty” as of June 15, 2012.

The initial assumption was that this requirement would disqualify a potential applicant who was 30 years and two months old at the time of the announcement.  Fortunately, DHS has now clarified that potential applicants will meet the age requirement so long as they were under 31 years old on June 15, 2012.  Therefore, many people who were 30 at the time of the announcement will qualify for the new deferred action program.
