RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The Department of Homeland Security will start taking applications to help young immigrants and students who were not born in the United States avoid deportation.

A local group celebrated the change. Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada (PLAN) held a rally to mark history. The group says the president's immigration order, which includes some provisions of the controversial DREAM Act, is designed to keep the best and brightest in the country.

To apply for a work permit, you must meet certain criteria, including going to school and not having a criminal past. The forms can be found at the website at www.uscis.gov. There's a $465 application fee.

If successful, applicants can get a driver's license and social security number, but have to reapply in two years.
