On November 20, 2014, President Barack Obama announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) would not deport certain undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and parents of lawful permanent residents. The president also announced an expansion of the current Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for youth who came to the United States as children. Under these presidential actions these parents and youth may be granted a type of temporary permission to stay in the U.S. called “deferred action” which allows them to work and contribute to the U.S. economy.
However, currently the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is NOT ACCEPTING applications for the expanded DACA program and new (DAPA) program. A federal district court in Texas has issued an order that temporarily blocks the DAPA and expanded DACA programs from being implemented. Meaning that people will not be able to apply for DAPA or expanded DACA until a court issues an order that allows the initiatives to go forward.
Please Help us Save DAPA & DACA by signing the petition.
