    This is all I know about it---Young people who have entered this country and who meets a certain criteria will not be considered for removal from this country. Because they are not considered a threat at such a young age when they arrived.

    That is not much but I remember hearing about this summer---so I am sure someone on HubPages will know more than I do.

    I wish I could be brilliant on this but the answer is simple. It is when a governmental or a quasi governmental entity and take action but defers it to a later time. It can be as simple as lack of resources to commence action or as complicated as witness protection and the US Marshals. It can involve a limited immunity or deferment on a traffic ticket. Prosecution of one offense with probation is the most common deferment for the second offense.
    In immigration it is a favor shown to the individual. There is no right to it. It is never required. But why deport a good fellow? And why so hurt a child? But if they screw up just one tiny bit -- bye bye.

    It sounds like depending on the age of the person when they were brought to this country may be favorable for them as long as the work they have done thus far has not been a risk to the country.  They will have 2 years of "freedom from removal" for lack of a better term or as it states deferred action.
