Wednesday was the day DREAMers have been waiting for. Forms went online that allow young immigrants (“childhood arrivals”) to apply for two years of “deferred action,” i.e. deferred deportation. While not a road to citizenship, it is a big step in immigrants rights, one made by an executive order from President Obama back in June.
