Avoiding arrest and deportation before RPI status

While DACA approved DREAMers will be protected from arrest for being in the USA illegally, the good news is all those of you who have not applied for DACA but are waiting to apply for RPI status directly, there is nothing to fear.  There is a provision in the law that if a law enforcement officer inquires your immigration status all you have to declare is that you are eligible for RPI.  There is no need to show any documents that proves that you have even applied for legalization.  You will not be arrested or deported as long as you make this claim.  If you are still arrested, you can actually sue the Government and get a free attorney because this is against the law.  Obviously, it is important to understand that this is only for immigration violations and not for other laws that you break.
