What does the new U.S. immigration policy mean for people in deportation proceedings?

Last week the U.S. government announced a change in its immigration policy. They suspended the deportation of 300,000 undocumented immigrants in the country while they review their cases one by one, indicating that they will focus on the removal of criminals.

But this is only a temporary measure, which has generated many questions and confusion among undocumented immigrants in this country.

In my column in this week's La OpiniónI explain what the new suspension of deportation policy means - for people who are in deportation proceedings, and for people who are newly detained or who may be detained in the future by immigration agents.
