Deferred action will not grant the applicant a green card, immigration status or citizenship. However, deferred action offers two significant benefits:
(a) It relieves the individual from the fear and uncertainty of being caught and someday placed in removal proceedings, while it relieves those who are presently in removal proceedings from being removed;
(b) It provides economic freedom to those who qualify through the issuance of EADs that would enable them to work legally.
