The Fogle Law Firm, LLC, a top nationwide Immigration Law Firm, is specifically dedicated to educating potential beneficiaries of the DREAM Act. The DREAM Act, if enacted, would allow certain young immigrants brought into the United States as children, who are now out of or have no immigration status, to register and regularize their status in the United States.
Although the DREAM Act has not been enacted, President Obama on June 15, 2012 announce a new government policy to grant a form of relief called “Deferred Action” to young people in the United States (often referred to as “DREAMers”) who would benefit from the DREAM Act if enacted. This relief will allow those to qualify to live and work in the United States for a two year renewable period of time.
The Fogle Law Firm, LLC is available to educate and assist potential beneficiaries of President Obama’s DREAMer relief so please feel free to contact us at your convenience.
