1/2018: A federal court in California has dealt a blow to Trump's plan to stop renewals of DACA for persons already on the DACA program. USCIS now has put in place a new procedure for people to file renewals of their DACA protection. This window to apply may close with another higher court decision as Trump challenges this new ruling so best to seek assistance and file for renewal of DACA if you are eligible now. More information on DACA and the protests to protect it at: email@example.com.
1/2018: People who have existing TPS protection from El Salvador and Haiti are now eligible to file for renewals of their work permits under TPS. The registration period runs from 1/18/18 until 3/19/18. TPS ends for Haitians on 7/22/19 and for El Salvador o 9//9/19. It is important for people affected by these programs to seek legal guidance on renewals of their work permits and what avenues, if any, they may have to remain in the United States after TPS ends. The Trump decision to end these TPS programs is against all evidence of the violent and devastating conditions existing in these countries and is cruel and inhumane. Citizen and non-citizen must unite together to fight for protections for persons affected by the end of these protective programs.
