Leonardo Irias Navas, head of the Consular Section at the Embassy of Honduras in gestures in his office in Washington, Tuesday, Aug. 14, 2012. The Department of Homeland Security is releasing for the first time details on how illegal immigrants brought to the US as children can apply to avoid deportation and receive a work permit. Alejandro Mayorkas, director of U.S. Immigration and Citizenship Services, said people who qualify for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program can download the application, including forms needed to get a work permit, from the agency's website, beginning Tuesday. They can start submitting applications on Wednesday. (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)
