Latest News on DREAMer fees

According to internal documents marked "not for distribution," which were obtained by The Associated Press this week the Department of Homeland Security described steps that DREAMers will need to take to apply for Deferred Action under President Obama’s Executive Order of June 15, 2012. The document states that there will be a $465 paperwork fee designed to offset the program's cost. DREAMers must have arrived in the U.S. before their 16th birthday, be 30 or younger, have been living here at least five years, must not have a serious criminal record, and must be in school or graduated or served in the military.  Starting August 15th eligible DREAMers will be able to request permission to stay in the country under the plan by filing a document(not yet available), "Request for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals," and simultaneously apply for a work permit.
