Under the Nicaraguan Adjustment and Central American Relief Act or NACARA, certain Salvadorans, Guatemalans, Eastern Europeans, and members of the class action lawsuit known as ABC (American Baptist Churches v. Thornburgh) may still apply for an old, otherwise unavailable path to a green card known as Suspension of Deportation. Suspension of Deportation was a form of relief from removal that existed until 1996, allowing people to avoid deportation by showing seven years continuous U.S. presence, good moral character, and the prospect of extreme hardship upon removal. If granted, NACARA Suspension of Deportation gives you lawful permanent resident status (a green card) in the United States.
