Immigration policy shift seen as boost to talent pool, economy
from Crain's New York Business
The Obama administration announced last spring that undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. under the age of 16 and who meet several guidelines can apply for so-called deferred action, which will allow them to remain in the country without fear of deportation for two years, subject to renewal. They would also be eligible to work legally. The move, expected to affect up to 60,000 undocumented immigrants in New York City, was roundly applauded by local business leaders, immigration advocates and elected officials, who said it would help boost the city's economy.
