As I have previously stated, it certainly would not be the first time a major project was halted.
I was thinking that if was re-elected he would announce that the project would be halted. Translation of the announcement would be: I was just playing with you. You can pack you bags now.

If Romney gets in who is to say that he wouldn't halt it or change the rules that would disqualify the majority - especially those who have a record for "minor offenses"?

Not only are illegals being pushed to the front of the line, they are also receiving their deferred action at a discounted rate, far below the established fees for aliens under similar status. Unlike others, they are only required to pay a total of $465 -- $380 for a work permit, and $85 for fingerprinting. So, if they don't want a work permit, will they only have to pay $85?

Excluded from their fees are the following:

$585 USCIS - I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility

$1,130 USCIS - I-687, Application for Status as a Temporary Resident Under Section 245A of the Immigration and Nationality Act

You would think to be fair that they would at least have to pay the same fees as a potential legal immigrant would, wouldn't you?

Sadly, nothing about this is fair. They have to go through the same process as others, at the same administrative costs. Only, unlike others, taxpayers will pay most of their fees.

It's easier to link the instructions, and realize the applications are unrelated:

http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-601instr.pdf

http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-687instr.pdf

It looks like you are really looking over USCIS material, any particular reason?...

$380 isn't for the work permit. It's to process the request to receive deferment under DACA. The work permit is a subsidiary aspect of DACA. Regardless of whether one applies for the EAD (work permit) they will have to pay the $380 and the additional cost of fingerprinting/biometrics.

What about we all wait till the 15th, when the full process is released and we start seeing how DACA is actually handled?
