Interactive: Who’s Eligible for Deferred Action in Texas

"Texas is second to California in the number of beneficiaries who could immediately apply, with about 152,550 to California’s 298,000, according to the IPC. If the policy is kept in place, about 74,000 and 114,500 could potentially apply in Texas and California, respectively, when they are older.  This interactive map reflects how many [unauthorized] immigrants could benefit immediately and if the program is kept in place after this year, using information from the Immigration Policy Center.  The potential applicants’ countries of origins are also included.  Click on the map to see detailed information on potential beneficiaries in each congressional district." – Texas Tribune, Aug. 8, 2012.
