DACA is restored !!
In another series of update on DACA, Law Office of John Rottier is happy to share the latest update that USCIS is now accepting applications.
This is a major relief as this effectively reverts current administration active efforts to deny DACA recipients the intended benefits of this program with recent changes. With this ruling new DACA applications has resumed and will be good for two years with option for renewal every two years.
On November 14, 2020 Judge Garaufis of the U.S. District Court for the Easter District of New York issued and opinion regarding the July 28, 2020 memorandum signed by acting secretary Wolf. December 4, 2020 Judge Garaufis required the Department of Homeland Security to take action to implement his November 14 judicial opinion.
Due to this December 7, 2020 US Citizenship and Immigration Services again started accepting new initial requests for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) based on the terms of the original DACA policy as well as applications for advanced parole for DACA. One year grants of DACA and employment authorizations under DACA are now 2 years again instead of 1 year. US Citizenship and Immigration Services is to provide evidence of one year extensions of DACA and employment authorization under DACA to those who were issued documents on or after July 28, 2020 with only a year validity period.
