Action was taken to assist illegal immigrants who came to America as children or adolescents. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services started accepting applications for deferred action on those illegal immigration cases Aug. 15, meaning undocumented residents who met certain criteria could apply for deferred action on their status. Only 745 residents applied in Utah during the first month, reflective of the uncertainty and fear that is the backdrop to the immigration reform debate.
