There are many questions related to the future of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) now that President-elect Trump is due to take office on January 20, 2017.
HISTORY OF DACA: Since the initiation of DACA in 2012, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services have reported the number of approved applications to be about 750,000 which include work authorization for those individuals. It has also been reported that about 525,000 renewal applications have been approved.
FUTURE OF DACA: Although the future of DACA is uncertain at this point, it is still important to discuss your options with an immigration attorney. You should know the risks associated with applying depending if it is your first time or you need to renew. In addition it is important to review changes that have occurred since your last application, such as criminal arrests or convictions that could impact you.
The best way you can prepare yourself is to know your rights. It is important to seek advice from an attorney to explore all possible immigration benefits for you and your family. Contact us if you have questions about this or any other immigration benefit available.
