USCIS Reverses Decision For “Delayed” DACA Renewals

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on Wednesday issued guidelines for Deferred Action on Childhood Arrival (DACA) Act recipients to resubmit their renewal applications in response to calls by lawyers and Congress leaders to reverse a USCIS decision rejecting supposedly delayed renewal applications for not meeting the October 5, 2017, deadline. It was reported the previous week that more than 100 applications for DACA extension from the New York and Chicago areas were rejected due to a mysterious mail delay despite being proven by lawyers that the applications were received by the USCIS on or before the October 5, 2017, deadline.

DACA permit extensions will allow more than 800,000 young immigrants to stay in the US and be protected from deportation after the Trump Administration repealed the Obama-era DACA Act. The DACA allows underage illegal minor immigrants who were brought into the country by their parents to live and work legally in the country.
