Young Immigrants Line Up For Deferred Action

    They were brought to America illegally when they were kids. Now immigrants are getting a new chance to stay and work in the United States.

    FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports from Washington:

    Months after President Obama announced a new immigration enforcement policy, thousands of young immigrants are now lining up outside consulates to apply for deferred action.

    (Immigrant) “To have a dream, to reach our goals, to be somebody.”

    New guidelines say illegal immigrants can get work permits and avoid deportation if they were brought to the U.S. as children, don’t have a serious criminal record, finish school or serve in the military.

    It’s modeled after the DREAM Act, a law that has stalled in Congress. Republicans have blasted the White House over the order, calling it amnesty.
