Amongst the firsts to get a US work permit under DACA!



Story goes like Ivone Guillen came to the U.S. from Mexico with her family when she was 5, looking for a better future. Although she now lives in Washington, D.C She grew up in Yakima and the Tri-City area, and said she still considers herself a Tri-Citian. Guillen submitted 70 pages on Aug. 17 two days after the federal forms were made public, including the application and supporting documents.

For those who were younger than 16 when they entered the U.S. the deferred action on deportation is available. They should have lived in the U.S. for at least the past five years. They should be between 15 and 30 years of age now and shouldn’t have a criminal record and are in school, are a high school graduate or have a GED or were honorably discharged from the U.S. military.

Guillen said it is a fairly straightforward process and encourages others who qualify to apply or at least talk about their concerns with an attorney. Ivone Guillen said she wasn’t going to believe that her work permit was real until she could hold it in her hand.

One of the first 29 people in the United States this week, the permit arrived in the mail, making Guillen to receive a work permit through the new federal deferred action program.

“I was amazed,” said the 25-year-old former Tri-Citian.
