Call for Submissions: Share Your Work Saying “Not1More”

Sí Se Puede DHS Rulemaking Petition to Halt Deportations


Rulemaking Document Icon

The National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), together with individual petitioners, has submitted a rule making petition to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) seeking a temporary suspension of deportations for the millions of undocumented immigrants who would likely benefit from near–term congressional action on immigration.

The petition requests that DHS issue a rule granting deferred action status to such immigrants. Like the Department’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, the petition requests temporary deferred action to shield immigrants from deportation and to provide work authorization, but for a much larger class of individuals.

Support to the Rulemaking Petition:
Would you or your organization be affected by a suspension of deportations? Register your name and a statement of interest in the comment box and NDLON will compile all responses and submit them as a supplement to add all the interested individuals and organizations as petitioners.
