Request a Statement of Interest

Deferred action is when the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) uses its discretion in immigration matters and provides a noncitizen worker temporary protection from deportation for a period of time, usually up to two years. If a worker makes a request, DCWP can submit a letter (or a Statement of Interest) in support of a deferred action request when a worker is covered by a DCWP labor investigation or enforcement action.
