On January 20, 2017, President Trump took the oath of office as the 45th President of the United States. He quickly began the work of signing Executive Orders affecting immigration.
As of January 26, 2017, a highly anticipated decision regarding the executive action on DREAMERS (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) has not been made yet. The BRIDGE Act (Bar Removal of Individuals who Dream and Grow our Economy) was introduced to Congress in December, as a form of protection for those individuals who are eligible and those who have already received work authorization and temporary relief from Deportation to continue living in the U.S.
National, state and local religious and civil rights organizations continue to seek relief for those individuals who currently have DACA, 87% of whom are employed and contributing to our economy.
While the future of DACA is uncertain, it is best to seek an attorney to review what other options are currently available for you. Perhaps a family situation has recently changed such as a marriage or an adoption that could alter you or your family’s eligibility for relief. Speak to an immigration attorney today.
