Federal government begins accepting DACA renewals following court order

Patty Aguilar | 14 January, 2018, 21:43

"Until further notice, and unless otherwise provided in this guidance, the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on September 5, 2017", U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a part of DHS, wrote on its website Saturday.

Word of the announcement quickly spread on social media, and some immigration lawyers posted alerts on their Facebook pages.

USCIS said it was not accepting requests from those who had never been given deferred action under DACA.

President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE announced past year that he would rescind the program, and gave Congress six months to find a solution for the program.

The senators proposed that 25,000 of those visas go to individuals - including people from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan - whose temporary protected status is set to expire in the near future following recent moves by the Trump administration.

Trump gave Congress six months to find a way to allow dreamers approved for the DACA program to remain in the USA permanently.

But last week, a federal judge in San Francisco said the almost 690,000 DACA recipients must retain their work permits and their protection from deportation while a lawsuit moves forward.

General Motors (GM) PT Raised to $41.38
Following the sale, the chief accounting officer now directly owns 66,838 shares of the company's stock, valued at $2,971,617.48. The rating was upgraded by Bernstein to "Mkt Perform" on Monday, September 26. (NYSE:GG) rating on Wednesday, January 13.

That number will soar to over 1,000 a day after March 5, when the program was set to begin being phased out, with all permits expiring by the end of September 30, 2019.

Trump's tweets came just hours after his administration resumed receiving renewal applications for "Dreamers" under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program following a federal court order blocking the administration from ending the program.

USCIS will only be accepting renewal applications from people previously approved for the DACA program.

President Barack Obama created the DACA program in 2012 to give young immigrants the ability to work legally in the United States.

Trump promised to end the program during the campaign, and in announcing it was being phased out, U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions called it an unconstitutional circumvention of Congress.

"UC will continue to support DACA recipients by challenging the legality of the Trump administration's rescission of DACA, supporting congressional legislation that would allow for permanent protection, and providing services and aid to its undocumented students", UCOP said in the statement.

The cost to file a renewal application will be the same as before, $495.
