The illegal migrants residing in the US will no longer worry for their deportation from the country as the new scheme announced in favor of them allows them to make themselves free from deportation for two years.
Announced by the US president Barack Obama, the new scheme lets such illegal migrants file their application for determination granting that will help them to avoid deportation for at least two years; if their applications get selected they will be allowed to avail the benefits of work permit in the United States.
The USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) will be responsible to accept the application and then the entire procedure will be taken into force. Meanwhile, the applicants get assurance from the department that deportation action will not be taken in any circumstance during this period.
After completing the entire procedure, the successful applicants will get right to continue their stay in the US for an allotted period of two years.
