900 DACA Applications Rejected Because of Mail Delay

In addition to the previous report of 4,000 rejected Deferred Action on Childhood Arrival (DACA) renewal applications, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) admitted that an additional 900 DACA renewal applications were rejected due to US Postal Mail delay. The applications were received by the US Postal Service before the October 5, 2017 deadline but were rejected for not being officially received by the USCIS. The USCIS has since given the rejected applicants an additional 33 days to resubmit their applications after being pressured by the public and US Congressmen.
It can be remembered that on September 5, 2017, the Trump Administration cancelled the DACA Program, which allows illegal immigrants who were brought into the country while being minors to live and work legally in the U.S. DACA recipients whose permits expire before March 5, 2018 were allowed to renew their permits for an additional 2-year period.
