Obama Administration to Young Illegal Immigrants: Pay to Try to Stay

Youth encouraged to pay $465 fee to try to avoid deportation. No guarantees and the process won't lead to citizenship or allow international travel

The Obama administration on Tuesday directed young illegal immigrants to fill out new forms and pay $465 if they want to apply under a new program that would let them avoid deportation and obtain a U.S. work permit.

The government renewed warnings that the process wouldn't lead to citizenship or give them permission to travel internationally. It will begin accepting immigrants' applications Wednesday.
