Dreamers,

 

As you know the U.S. Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) blocked the Trump administration from ending the program Deferred Action Childhood Arrival (DACA) who protects over 800,000 recipients since 2012. This is a big win for every DACA recipient and all potential applicants.

 

What happens next? SCOTUS decision will allow applicants to apply for the first time. We are currently waiting on U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) to update the guidelines in order for us to start submitting new applications. 

 

While we Wait! we are recommending new applicants to start gathering the required documentation that were previously introduced by USCIS back in 2012. What are those requirements:

 

  • Have arrived in the United States before the age of 16.

  • Be at least 15 years old but younger than 31 years old on June 15, 2012.

    • (Although you must be younger than 31 years old on June 15, 2012, the first time you apply for deferred action, upon renewal you may be older than 31 years old.)

  • Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time.

  • Where present in the United States on June 15, 2012.

  • Currently be enrolled in school, have a US high school diploma or GED certificate, or, be honorably discharged from the US Armed Forces or the Coast Guard.

  • Have no felonies or significant misdemeanors such as DUIs, domestic violence, etc.; you will be required to undergo a criminal background check.

 

We highly recommend that you seek the right help and do not get scam by "notarios" or offices who are not allowed to practice immigration law. Alianza Hispanoamericana NFP, Inc. is accredited by the Department of Justice (DOJ) to practice immigration law. You can also search for other non-profit organizations around the country online.
