DHS Guidance on School Documents Shows Sham Nature of Requirement
"Applicants have to demonstrate, among other criteria, that they are currently enrolled in school, have graduated from high school, or have obtained a GED. But school records will also help many potential beneficiaries prove another key qualification: continuous presence in the U.S. for the last five years," notes Education Week in a post about the documentary standards for the Obama amnesty plan.
"Educators wanted to know how "official" school records must be. The answer, said DHS officials, is that there is no fixed requirement for what form the school records must take; what matters is content. The key pieces of information on those documents are the student's name, the time period that the document covers, and evidence of coursework that was completed. DHS officials said that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency--which is handling the reviews of all deferred action requests--is prepared to accept any documents that schools provide to applicants."
