Schools Busy Filling Requests for Transcripts for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Applicants

Schools across the country are fielding an increase in requests for transcripts.  This is fueled by the requirement under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA or Deferred Action for DREAMers) that the applicant either have a diploma or GED, or be currently in school.  San Diego has even opened a special center specifically for the purpose of handling the increase in transcript requests.

San Diego reports a backlog in complying with the requests.  So far, there is no deadline on when a person can apply for deferred action under this program.  But, should there be a change in Administration, and with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney promising to end the program if he were to take office, there may be more urgency for potential applicants to obtain the documentation sooner and submit the applications while President Obama is still in office.
