PHOENIX -In response to a court order, the federal government announced Saturday that it would resume accepting renewal applications from young immigrants previously approved for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Texas is home to the second largest population of active DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients in the nation.
But members of Congress have struggled to agree on a permanent legal solution for DACA recipients. The administration said at the time it did not have the authority to administer the program and it was up to Congress to make it law.
"Hello my people just got the news that USCIS will be accepting DACA applications starting now".
Australia v England one-day series: Why tourists are favourites
In 2006-07, England were whitewashed 5-0 but went on to win the tri-series involving Australia and New Zealand. The best way to address it is to be on the front foot.
The immigration office said that deferments under DACA do not confer legal residency but gives prosecutors discretion on enforcing immigration laws. "Catholic Charities will resume our weekly DACA renewal clinics and will continue our unconditional support of the DACA community".
The decision comes four days after a federal judge, in a nod to pending lawsuits, temporarily blocked the Trump administration's decision to end the program.
Wednesday, the president criticized the judge's decision on Twitter. A Washington Post article reported that said in an Oval Office meeting that the US needs people from places like Norway rather than "sh-hole countries" like Haiti and El Salvador. Already about 120 DACA recipients who failed to renew applications by October 5 deadline are losing deportation protections and work permits daily. If someone's DACA expired on or after September 5, 2016, that person may file a renewal request, the agency says; people who received DACA that expired before then can file a new DACA request.
