Hope for Dreamers
Today we celebrate a BIG WIN on the immigration front! Since 2017 Trump’s administration has been attempting to terminate the DACA program. The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of DACA and this completely restores the program in its full capacity taking new and renewed applications.
What does this mean?
- DACA recipients will be protected from deportation and eligible for the same previous benefits like work authorization cards.
- DACA recipients can continue to renew their DACA for two more years.
- New DACA applications can be submitted.
- Advance Parole allows DACA recipients to travel outside the United States and return however; due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic travel options are slim to none.
Although this good news is of relief to anyone going through or who wishes to go through the DACA program, it is essential to still consult with an immigration law professional to insure that everything is in good standing and discuss what further options are possible.
