Flow Chart: Who qualifies for the Administration’s executive action on immigration?

The framework and deadlines imposed within the framework of who is and who is not eligible for the temporary deportation reprieve is meant to serve a purpose, including: to discourage new immigrants without proper documents from coming in the future, and dissuade women already here from giving birth with the goal of securing deferrals.

Some of the central goals of the Administration’s executive action were:

1. Help crack down on illegal immigration at the border.

2. Focus on a framework that deports felons, not families.

3. Create more accountability — encouraging criminal background checks and taxes.

This is one way to make sense of who could benefit, and who will not, compliments of the Washington Post:
