Citizenship and Immigration Services return to accepting DACA requests

Citizenship and Immigration Services return to accepting DACA requests

The DACA program was created in 2012 by former President Obama to temporarily shield from deportation undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children.

In response to a recent federal court order issued on Tuesday, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials announced on Saturday that they would resume accepting renewal applications for those benefiting from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Texas is home to the second largest population of active DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients in the nation.

"The new administration didn't terminate DACA on policy grounds", Alsup wrote in the opinion.

"The government can still appeal, and a higher court can overrule and stop the process again", he said, adding that Congress could also enact a new federal law covering the Dreamers if negotiations over DACA are successful in the coming weeks.

"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and unless otherwise provided in this guidance, the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on September 5, 2017", the update said. "Catholic Charities will resume our weekly DACA renewal clinics and will continue our unconditional support of the DACA community".

He said they "treated Eliza liked family" and he doesn't understand why she would lie about him now after all of these years. Kramer has denied the allegations, calling them "outlandish and manipulated lies".

But that agreement was cast into doubt the same day when a firestorm erupted after reports surfaced that President Trump, during a meeting with lawmakers over an immigration bill, asked why the USA was accepting immigrants from "shithole countries" referring reportedly to immigrants from Haiti and Africa.

Salinas she can't take a permanent teaching position because her work permit would expire in the middle of next year.

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

Trump's decision on DACA in September set an October 5 deadline for renewal applications, which would give recipients an another two years of legal residency in the United States.

The White House and President Donald Trump initially blasted the decision.
