At first, Governor Mitt Romney said that he would allow the Deferred Action program started by President Obama to continue if he's elected to office. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program allows for eligible young adults to apply for work permit that lasts two years.
In the beginning of October, Mr. Romney changed his stance, and announced that he wouldn't continue the policy. Mr. Romney won't revoke any permits that were granted before he takes office, if he's elected, but he won't allow any more to be granted afterward.
If you're thinking about applying for DACA, you should speak with an immigration attorney to see if your are eligible for it, and to talk about the life of the program before and after the upcoming presidential election.
