On June 15, 2012, the Obama Administration announced that it would offer many DREAM Act-eligible youth temporary relief through “deferred action.” The memorandum offers hope to many eligible young adults by providing a work permit. The State of Illinois is home to over 75,000 DREAM Act-eligible youth. The Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights (ICIRR) and the Illinois Department of Human Services have launched the DREAMRELIEF Campaign to serve these young adults.
