AIC's Wendy Sefsaf gives insight and advice to those interested in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals initiative in this Central Florida Future article:
There is a calculated risk for DREAMers who apply for deferred action, Wendy Sefsaf, communications director for the American Immigration Council, said. When the DACA order expires, they risk having exposed themselves to immigration officials.
“I would say to be very cautious,” Sefsaf said. “Make sure that they get legal counsel and they’re not putting themselves in a position where they could get deported — especially if they have a criminal background.”
"After two years, no one knows what will happen,” Sefsaf said. “Hopefully the DREAM Act is passed, but if not — it could expire and no one really knows.”
