Assignment: Immigration: How does it affect you?
iREPORTERS SIGNED UP
Created June 19, 2012 by
The Obama administration recently said it will stop deporting young illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children if they meet certain requirements. Soon after, the Supreme Court rejected key parts of Arizona's immigration law but upheld its most controversial provision.
Under Obama's new policy, people younger than 30 who came to the United States before the age of 16, pose no criminal or security threat, and were successful students or served in the military can get a two-year deferral from deportation.
