In the news
DACA, DAPA and Extended DACA:
In November of 2014, President Obama announced DAPA and Extended DACA, to supplement the DACA program he initiated by executive order in 2012, which provides work permits and deferred action to illegal immigrants in the U.S. DAPA would allow the parents of U.S. citizens and residents to obtain a work permit, while Extended DACA would extend the DACA benefits to persons present in the U.S. since January 1, 2010, regardless of age. Since it’s announcement in 2014, the new DAPA and Extended DACA programs have been put on hold by the courts. The Obama administration is challenging the injunction against his new programs, and there was a hearing in April 2015 seeking to have the injunction lifted. We expect the court to issue a decisions soon and, hopefully, allow people to begin submitting DAPA and Extended DACA applications soon thereafter.
In the meantime, the court injunctions do not effect the original DACA program that began in 2012. DACA renewals and applications are still being accepted and processed by USCIS.
