It's been more than a week since we last heard from Ivan Ceja, a 20-year-old Long Beach City College student from Compton who was among the first to apply for temporary legal status under the deferred action program in mid-August.
Ceja has been diligently checking online since to see what the status of his application is, especially since he submitted his fingerprints to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement two weeks ago today.
Last night, he checked the USCIS website before going to bed and still, no news. This morning when he woke up, he checked again - and his life changed. Listen to his story.
