Immigration Law Issues: Strict enforcement of immigration law is impacting New Jersey employers.
Under the Trump administration, there has been perhaps no more relevant issue to businesses than immigration law. From immigration bans, to the potential termination of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), many of the Garden State’s employers are facing unprecedented pressure to comply with immigration law as it pertains to their hiring practices.
Time For DACA Renewals!
As of February 2018, USCIS is accepting renewal requests for cases expiring in more than 180 days.
On January 13, 2018, USCIS said it will accept renewal requests for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, after a federal judge issued an injunction ordering the Trump administration to resume the program.
What is DACA?
DACA gives certain undocumented young people, or “Dreamers,” two-year work authorization and temporary protection from deportation.
Applying for DACA
If you were previously granted Deferred Action, you can request renewal if your DACA expired on or after September 5, 2016. If your DACA grant expired before that date, you can file a new application.
