What immigration advantages can you get due to the DREAM Act?
The Dream Act permits you to get a form of relief described as “Deferred Action”, which basically gives you two valuable benefits:
1. The Dream Act prevents your deportation. This Dream Act relief is for a provisional, two-year period. Following the two-year period, most probably, you could reapply for or otherwise extend the Dream Act deportation relief.
2. The Dream Act will allow you to get a work permit “known as an Employment Authorization Card”. The work permit, through the Dream Act, would allow you to acquire a social security number and apply for a driver’s license.
What the DREAM Act is NOT
• The Dream Act is NOT a green card or a path to a green card
• The Dream Act is NOT U.S. citizenship and doesn’t lead to citizenship
• The Dream Act will not allow you to travel outside of the United States
