(SALEM) - Oregon DMV will accept applications for driver licenses, instruction permits and identification cards as of January 16 from Oregon residents approved for the federal “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) program who have been issued immigration Form I-766.

DMV will accept a valid immigration Form I-766 as proof of lawful presence in the U.S., and the Oregon driver license or ID card’s expiration date will match the expiration date on the person’s Form I-766. Applicants must meet all Oregon requirements for driving privileges and ID cards, including proof of identity, age, residence address, passage of tests, and payment of fees. DMV electronically verifies Social Security numbers and federal immigration documents.


On June 15, 2012, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano issued a memorandum directive authorizing the federal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its agencies to grant deferred action to certain individuals who entered the United States illegally as children.

The DACA program allows an eligible individual to apply for and receive deferred action status. Deferred action under the DACA program means the person is not subject to immigration removal proceedings for two years, which may be renewed, and may be granted authorization to work in the United States legally. If approved, a person is issued an immigration document Form I-766 (Employment Authorization) or Form I-797 (Notice of Action) by the United States Custom and Immigration Service.

Each individual state must determine whether a grant of deferred action status by the federal Department of Homeland Security satisfies the state’s requirements for issuance of a driver license or ID card. ORS 807.021 and ORS 807.730 require that a person provide proof of legal presence in the United States before DMV may issue a driver license, driver permit or ID card. A person provides proof of legal presence by submitting valid documentation as defined by DMV by rule. DMV administrative rule, OAR 735-062-0015(4), authorizes DMV to accept a Form I-766 as proof a person is legally present in the United States on a temporary basis.

Note: Friday, Jan. 18, is a statewide furlough. All DMV offices will be closed for four days with the furlough on Friday through the holiday (Martin Luther King Jr. Day) on Monday, January 21. DMV recommends that people avoid lines on the Thursday before and the Tuesday after the four-day weekend.


Oregon DMV Aceptará Solicitantes de “Acción Diferida”

Empezando el 16 de Enero, Oregon DMV aceptará solicitudes para licencias de conducir, permisos de instrucción y tarjetas de identificación de residentes de Oregon que han sido aprobados para el programa federal de “Acción Diferida para los Llegados en la Infancia” (DACA, por sus siglas en inglés) que han recibido un formulario de inmigración I-766. DMV aceptará un formulario de inmigración I-766 válido como prueba de presencia legal en EE.UU., y la fecha de vencimiento de la licencia o tarjeta de identificación de Oregon coincidirá con la fecha de vencimiento en el formulario I-766 de la persona. Los solicitantes deben cumplir todos los requisitos de Oregon para recibir privilegios de conducir o una tarjeta de identificación, incluyendo prueba de identidad, edad, dirección de domicilio, el aprobar los exámenes, y el pago de las tarifas. El DMV verifica electrónicamente los números de Seguro Social y los documentos de inmigración federales.

Historial de Antecedentes El 15 de Junio, 2012, la Secretaria de Seguridad Nacional, Janet Napolitano, emitió un memorando directivo autorizando a el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional (DHS, por sus siglas en inglés) federal y sus agencias a conceder acción diferida a ciertos individuos quienes, siendo niños, llegaron a los Estados Unidos ilegalmente. El programa DACA permite a un individuo elegible a solicitar y recibir un estatus de acción diferida. Acción diferida, bajo el programa DACA significa que la persona no está sujeta a los procedimientos inmigratorios de remoción por dos años, es sujeto a renovación, y puede que se le conceda autorización de ser empleado legalmente en los Estados Unidos. Si la solicitud es aprobada, El Servicio de Ciudadania e Inmigración de Estados Unidos emitirá un documento de inmigración Formulario I-766 (Autorización de Empleo) o Formulario I-797 (Aviso de Acción) al solicitante. Cada estado debe determinar si la concesión de un estatus de acción diferida por el Departamento de Seguridad Nacional federal satisface los requisitos del estado para la emisión de una licencia de conducir o una tarjeta de identificación. Los Estatutos Revisados de Oregon, ORS 807.021 y ORS 807.730, requieren que una persona proporcione prueba de presencia legal en los Estados Unidos antes que DMV pueda emitir una licencia de conducir, permiso de conducir o tarjeta de identificación. Una persona puede proporcionar prueba de presencia legal al presentar documentos válidos según la definición del DMV, por regla. La Regla Administrativa del DMV, OAR 735-062-0015(4), autoriza al DMV a aceptar el Formulario I-766 para prueba que una persona está legalmente presente en los Estados Unidos por un plazo temporal.

Let’s face it, this driver's license thing is just one aspect of a much larger 20th century issue that has slopped over into the 21st century and the time has come to finally resolve it. A new worldwide book/ebook explains the role, struggles, and contributions of immigrants and minorities: "What Foreigners Need To Know About America From A To Z: How to understand crazy American culture, people, government, business, language and more." Endorsed by ambassadors, educators, and editors, it paints a revealing picture of America on numerous subjects for those who will benefit from a better understanding. Immigrants and the children they bear account for 60 percent of our nation's population growth and are 60 percent more likely to start a new business than native-born Americans. It identifies "foreigners" who became successful in the US and contributed to our society. However, most struggle in their efforts and need guidance if they are to contribute. Perhaps intelligent immigration reform, White House-Congress cooperation, concerned citizens and books like this can extend a helping hand to those in need. California and other states are now increasingly devising their own solutions to immigration reform, which has stalled in Washington. A poll shows Californians are overwhelmingly in favor of President Obama's new program granting work permits and a two-year reprieve from deportation to some young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. Respondents also favor granting driver's licenses to the same group. It found that most Californians want increased border enforcement and think that local police and sheriffs should have a role in apprehending suspected illegal immigrants. However, Californians seem to be sending a message to the federal government that we should be able to find a solution to this problem, somewhere in between amnesty and deportation. Here's a closing quote from the book's Intro: "With all of our cultural differences though, you'll be surprised to learn how much our countries—and we as human beings—have in common on this little third rock from the sun. After all, the song played at our Disneyland parks around the world is 'It's A Small World After All.' Peace."
