The President announced a set of far-reaching executive actions to provide relief from deportation for {large|significant|big|sizable|substantial|extensive) groups of aliens currently in the US without documentation.

Specifically, the the Administration has announced that the Deferred Action policy will be expanded to cover all aliens who entered the US before the reaching age of sixteen and who are currently in the United States starting January 1, 2010. Applicants will have to show they do not have any felony convictions or serious misdemeanors on their criminal, and no more than two minor misdemeanors. Entitled individuals also need to prove they have graduated from an accredited high school, have earned a GED, or that they are currently working on their diploma or GED. Eligible applicants will receive shield from deportation by the Department of Homeland Security and a 3 years EAD (instead of the two-year work permit provided under the 2012 DACA), which may be renewed. With these EAD , Allowed applicants can also acquire valid social security numbers and driver’s licenses in North Carolina.

Furthermore, ...
... the Mr Obama has announced a new program for now named Deferred Action for Parents, which will {provide|afford|confer|extend| the same benefits as the expanded DACA program (protection from deportation and renewable three-year work permits) to all applicants who are parents of United States citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident children and who have been present in the US since at least January 1, 2010. Applicants would also need to meet the criminal background check requirements. However, DAP applicants will not have the same education requirements.

The White House executive actions unfortunately only go so far and many problems in our immigration system will stay unchanged.

First, many undocumented individuals and their families are “starved for details” as to whether or not some of their cases, complicated by criminal records or prior removals, will benefit from the new policy. The Obama administration has announced they will accept applications under the new policy in six-months, but have not explained when or if thorough guidelines concerning such technicalities will be made available. Second, by limiting deferred action to undocumented immigrants who had U.S. citizen or resident children as of November 20, 2014, many who have made close ties to United States in other ways remain in danger of deportation. NC Policy Watch notes “little more than 40 percent of the [North Carolina’s] total population” of undocumented immigrants will benefit under these new plans. Additionally, the President’s new plan limits the overall economic benefit of immigration reform. The Economist notes that the comprehensive immigration reform bill passed by the Senate in 2013 would have boosted the GDP by 3.3 % over a decade, whereas the President’s executive action will contribute only between 0.4% and 0.9% in over the same period.

We do applaud White House bold executive action on immigration. However, while those who do qualify for the new policy are relieved, most of the U.S. immigration system’s flaws remain un-fixed and immigration reform is still sorely needed.

In a new development, in a 6-3 decision, SCOTUS decided that Arizona has to issue driver licenses to DACA immigrants who entered the US as children and are now the recipients of DACA program. The justices allowed a unanimous United States Court of Appeal for the Ninth Circuit decision stand despite an emergency application by Gov. Brewer of Arizona. The dispute over issuing driver’s licenses to young immigrants began in 2012 when the Obama Administration issued an executive action deferring deportation to immigrants, also known as “dreamers”, who were brought to the US illegally by their parents. The dreamers are also eligible to receive work permits.
