Comment - Underestimating Deferred Action

The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) crunched the numbers and apparently DHS and a variety of other outlets have been drastically underestimating the total number of people eligible for Deferred Action. The MPI discovered that the figures DHS projected were based on the number of prospective applicants that were enrolled in school or had graduated on the mid-June date of the program's announcement and did not account for otherwise eligible people who could choose to re-enroll in school or an equivalency diploma program. The MPI believes that this underestimate could be by as much as half a million people, bringing their new estimate to a total of 1.76 million people that will be eligible to seek Deferred Action and work authorizations. It is noteworthy, however, that not all of these people will be immediately eligible - many are 15 or under and will become eligible shortly, presuming, of course, they remain in compliance with the other conditions required of those who apply. The full demographic profile of prospective applicants can be found here . Does this new information change anything about Deferred Action in your mind? Share your thoughts with us at editor@ilw.com
