NEWS FLASH - SUPREME COURT
TO REVIEW DACA AND DAPA
The Supreme Court announced that it will consider President Obama's immigration Executive Orders relating to the expansion of the Deferred Action Program for Children (DACA) and for providing temporary status including work and travel authorization to out of status parents of US Citizen and Permanent Resident Children (DAPA).
The Executive Order involves 4.3 million people who are awaiting permission to obtain Protected Status under the DAPA and DACA Programs.
The President unveiled the program over a year ago, but federal courts blocked implementation.The Supreme Court should rule on the case by early summer. If the Court approves the programs they will go into effect before he leaves office.
DRIVERS LICENSE OK FOR TRAVEL
The Department of Homeland Security issued a press release stating that until announced otherwise, TSA will continue to accept valid driver’s licenses and identification cards issued by all States. DHS plans to announce the schedule for any changes to air travel requirements by the end of the year and will ensure that State governments and the traveling public are notified at least 120 days in advance of implementation.
If your ID is not REAL ID-compliant by the time the full program is enforced, you may present your non-compliant driver’s license or ID card along with a second form of ID to TSA when you travel. For more information, you can check the TSA Web site at www.dhs.gov\real-id-enforcement-brief for updates as your travel date nears. A list of frequently asked questions on REAL ID may also be found at www.dhs.gov\real-id-public-faqs
OBAMA APPEALS TO SUPREME COURT
ON IMMIGRATION REFORMS
Today, DOJ filed a petition for a writ of certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court, asking the Court to overturn the injunction blocking DAPA and expanded DACA,
and arguing that the 26 states challenging President Obama's executive
actions lack standing to do so. The petition states that if the Fifth Circuit's majority ruling
is left undisturbed, it "will allow states to frustrate the federal
government’s enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws," and "will
force millions of people—who are not removal priorities under criteria
the court conceded are valid, and who are parents of U.S. citizens and
permanent residents—to continue to work off the books, without the
option of lawful employment to provide for their families."
All applicants for Permanent Residency May Apply for a Provisional Waiver
They have a US Citizen or Permanent Resident Parent or Spouse
Immigration has announced its intention to expand the provisional waiver program and confirms that the program applies to all visa applicants who are unlawfully in the USA may soon apply for a waiver. IN order to be eligible, all applicants must prove that they have a US Citizen or Permanent Resident Spouse or Parent who would suffer extreme hardship if they were not permitted to obtain their permanent residency.
The new program also applies to derivatives meaning spouses and children of principal applicants.
We await the final implementation of the rule which should take effect soon. If you think you are eligible, please contact our office to make an appointment to complete the process. We will be contacting our clients directly to confirm their eligibility. July 16, 2015.
