College student falls through the cracks of 'deferred action' policy

Last month we wrote about the passage of an executive order by the president of the United States, which makes it possible for some undocumented immigrants to remain the country without fear of deportation for a set period of time. Eligible individuals have to meet several different criteria including going to school or being a part of the military.

Executive Order means some students can remain in U.S.

Young people who were born in other countries but have lived in the United States since they were very small, along with supporters of the DREAM Act, likely rejoiced with the recent issuance of an Executive Order by the Obama administration regarding immigration. The Executive Order essentially suspends deportation proceedings against certain individuals who were brought to the U.S. by others when they were too young to make a decision regarding the matter themselves.
