Hundreds of young migrants living in United States, among them Ecuadorians, yesterday began a new stage in their lives by initiating a request process for the suspension of their deportations that would allow them to live legally in the country.
These young people call themselves “Dreamers” and are informing themselves for a better future in the country. Through the U.S. government plan, the dreamers can access the temporary suspension of deportation and obtain a residence permit for two years.
Among the conditions to qualify for the plan, the migrant must be 30 years or less, have lived in the U.S. 5 years minimum, have arrived to the country before the age of 16, having enlisted in the armed forces, having completed studies at an American high school and have completed or be enrolled in college.
Immigration officials have said they do not know how many could benefit from the new plan. (MZ)
