Is Deferred Action a law?

No.  Deferred action is a discretionary determination on the part of DHS.  It is an act of prosecutorial discretion.  The new policy will allow certain foreign-born individuals who entered the United States as children to apply for 2-year work permits, and possibly for extensions.  It is not a path to a green card or to U.S. citizenship.
