Today the Obama administration announced it would cease some deportations and offer undocumented young people who meet certain requirements the opportunity to work legally.

“GLAAD applauds the young, undocumented leaders, many of whom are LGBT, for their tireless advocacy to ensure that all Americans, including immigrants, have access to safety, equal opportunity and protection,” said GLAAD President Herndon Graddick.  “This is another step forward in creating a society that is accepting, respectful and inclusive of all people.”

The announcement comes just one day after TIME magazine released this week's edition featuring Pulitzer-Prize winning openly gay and undocumented Filipino-American journalist Jose Antonio Vargas in a cover story. It is worth noting that Vargas is not eligible to benefit under the new policy.
