Comment: Dreaming Of CIR? - We have argued for a long time that it is possible for the President to offer significant immigration relief through executive action independent of Congress. Secretary Janet Napolitano announced today that effective immediately, undocumented youth who are DREAM Act-eligible will be eligible to receive deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and will be eligible to apply for work authorization, on a case by case basis. While the details of how this initiative will be actually implemented remain to be seen, at its most optimistic interpretation, this is potentially a first step towards CIR. We will have a lot more to say about this development - stay tuned and write to us at
