The U.S. immigration service information published Thursday Sibra regulations for the renewal of certain deferred action for undocumented youth who are known as dreamers.
Deferred action was announced on June 15, 2012 and activated on 15 August of that year.
The Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) said the information posted on its website on February 19 applies to a small percentage of people whose cases were deferred between 15 June and 15 August 2012.
“In the coming months the USCIS issue guidance on the process of general renovation for most receptor DACA eligible for temporary protection, i.e., people who received deferred action USCIS from August 15, 2012 “he explained.
He further noted Aque people who demonstrate that they meet the guidelines “may request that their renewal applications will be accepted and eligible to obtain work authorization.”
The benefit protects young undocumented immigrants who entered the United States before turning 16 years old, have no criminal record and have less than 30 years.
The program temporarily canceled for two years deportation orders and granted a work permit for the same period of time.
The renewal “essentially is about the same when first applied benefited,” he told “But with a difference, very important: if the permit expires and the beneficiary does not renew the license, you can be arrested and deported, and lost work permit.”
The Bureau of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requested the renewal less than 120 days before the date of expiry of the TAT.
How is renewed
The permit renewal is carried out by means of Form I-821D.
The document “must be duly completed and signed, and accompanied by Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, along with rates or fees established amounting to $ 465,” the agency said in a statement.
To avoid losing the right to stay in the country and permit or employment authorization, USCIS asked the dreamers to start the process as soon as possible.
The regulation of renewal notes that if an individual whose case was initially deferred under DACA by the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), may be considered for renewal and dreamer had less than 31 years old on June 15, 2012, came to the United States before turning 16 years old, has lived in the country continuously since June 15, 2007 and has not left the U.S. territory after August 15, 2012.
Another requirement of DACA notes that the dreamer seeking re must have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion of secondary school.
Also eligible veterans who have served in the Coast Guard or the Armed Forces, or was studying at the time you requested the under DACA.
Another key requirement is that the dreamers who qualify must have no criminal record and have not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, three or more misdemeanors and not pose a threat to national security or public safety.
Deferred action covers 1.7 million undocumented youth.
The USCIS said it will review all applications for renewal and will use discretion in each case.
The agency added that all notices shall be in writing and that the decisions taken in renewal applications are not appeal-able.
