Just days before young, undocumented immigrants can begin to apply for work permits, state officials Monday announced $450,000 in grants to groups that can help them out.
President Obamas move announced with great fanfare in June lets immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as kids or overstayed their visas apply for a temporary legal status called deferred action.
It is critical that we get information out to our immigrant communities so that people will know who is eligible for deferred action and so that they can avoid being scammed, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver said.
The grants will support clinics, workshops and legal services across the state, where an estimated 80,000 immigrants between the ages of 15 and 30 could currently benefit, according to a Migration Policy Institute analysis.
Applicants must have lived in the U.S. since June 15, 2007, and be in high school, have graduated or received a GED.
They must have arrived in the U.S. before their 16th birthday. The new option which must be renewed every two years does not provide a path to citizenship but calls off deportation.

from taxpayers to give to criminals.
I bet the democrats were on hand helping with voter registration.
Amen Brother, you beat me to it.
I wish it were one of those stings they used to do to catch criminals with warrants. Like offering them free football tickets in the mail and when they show up, arresting them.
(only in this case, deporting)
If you're a middle class American, you're out of luck... same for your kids. Doncha just love Obama?

I love how all these “We Can’t Do Anything About Illegal Immigration” sons-of-bitches turn into Johnny-On-The-Spot when the chips fall in a direction they like...
Every one of them is a traitor.
Uh-huh. So what's the plan to prevent the illegal immigrants from scamming us?
Obama scheme to pad his illegal voters list to win the election!!
Just in time to vote in the November election.
Yes they are.
At least 17,000 expected to avail themselves of this Obama bribery scam in my small state.
The teen job market had already collapsed in the past few years, and now we're adding all these illegals into the mix to compete with legal citizens for scarce job opportunities.
