breaking: Supreme court agrees to hear challenges to travel ban 3.0 (jan. 19, 2018)
The U.S. Supreme Court announced on Friday that it would consider a challenge to President Trump’s latest effort to limit travel from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad, North Korea, and Venezuela. The justices are likely to hear arguments in the latest case in the spring and to issue a decision in late June. The appeal stems from a lawsuit brought by Hawaii, several individuals and a Muslim group; they prevailed before a Federal District Court and before a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. In the meantime, the Trump Administration is fully implementing Travel Ban 3.0, based on a Supreme Court order from early December 2017.
USCIS Accepts daca renewal applications as a result of court order. (jan. 15, 2017)
As a result of a federal court order, USCIS will again be adjudicating Renewal Applications for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) under the same terms in place before the program was rescinded on September 5, 2017. USCIS will not be accepting initial applications from those who have never been granted DACA, nor will it accept advance parole applications from DACA recipients. If one previously had DACA, but it expired before September 5, 2016, DACA must be requested as an initial request, rather than as a renewal. For more information, visit the USCIS website. The Department of Justice has appealed the court's decision, and will also seek direct review of the decision by the US Supreme Court. (Jan. 16, 2018)
