On June 15, 2012 the Department of Homeland Security announced a new policy that would allow certain undocumented young people to remain in the United States temporarily without fear of deportation and apply for deferred action. Deferred action would make these youth eligible for a work permit and social security number.

DREAMersRights.org is an online initiative aimed at helping young people understand their legal rights and connect with resources that can help during the deferred action application process.
