Philadelphia Immigration Lawyers: DAPA Program Creates Jobs for Immigrants

President Obama’s Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) program, developed as part of his immigration executive action, could create over 20,000 jobs each year over the next 10 years.  DAPA allows undocumented immigrant parents to request temporary deferred action from deportation and obtain employment in the United States under the following conditions:

  • Individuals have been in the U.S. since January 1, 2010.
  • They are parents of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident born on or before November 20, 2014.

The Center for American Progress (CAP) estimated that over 70% of the immigrant population who are not documented will be part of the labor force in 2015.  At least 3.5 million immigrants can now included in the DAPA program.

During the next Presidential election in 2016, Latinos will make up approximately 13% of the voting population.  Many of these people are children of immigrants and they understand the hardships and the experiences immigrants face when coming to America.  Over half of Latino registered voters claim they know people who are living undocumented in the United States.

Representatives from CAP immigration are pushing for the deferred action program to be implemented because of the positive economic contributions this plan will have on communities throughout America.   At this point in time, 25 states are attempting to block the President’s deferred action programs while other states are pushing for the program. The implementation of DAPA is sure to be a hot topic for any politician involved in the 2016 presidential election.
