Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) has announced that the DREAMer Deferred Action policy is available to persons who are in or have been in removal proceedings.  Specifically, three categories of individuals are affected:  1) Eligible persons currently in proceedings can have such proceedings terminated and receive deferred action; 2) persons with a final order of removal will be able to apply with USCIS once that agency begins accepting applications; and 3) persons who have been granted voluntary departure and the departure period has not expired can have their cases re-opened for purposes of termination and a grant of deferred action.  Individuals in categories 1 and 3 should act immediately to prevent their removal from the U.S.
