President Obama's Immigration Accountability Executive Action and the Expansion of the Provisional Waiver Program

President Obama recently announced efforts to retool critical aspects of the immigration system. The President has authorized the Department of Homeland Security to significantly expand the use of deferred action to provide temporary protection from removal for millions of unauthorized immigrants currently in the U.S. This will happen through the expansion of the current Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, as well as the creation of a new deferred action program, Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA). This blog will focus on those new programs in more detail in weeks to come.
