Despite all the fanfare over the Obama Administration’s announcement of deferred action status for DREAM eligible youth, it hasn’t actually begun. Eligible applicants must fill out a form to get the deferred action status for themselves, and that process will commence on August 15. And US Citizenship and Immigration Services announced yesterday that the immigrants will have to pay the US government $465 for the privilege.

Applicants must meet a number of other requirements, including certification that they have lived continuously in the US for five years, beyond their age and lack of a criminal record and student or military status.
