The Office of the Citizenship and Immigration Services Ombudsman (CIS Ombudsman) shared DACA renewal tips this week, urging applicants to file early and double check to make sure their applications are complete.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is currently enjoined from adjudicating first-time DACA requests, but continues to process renewal requests. The CIS Ombudsman recommended that renewal applicants:
Additional Information: In July, a federal judge in Texas ruled that the DACA program was unlawful and enjoined the agency from adjudicating first-time requests, but not renewals.

BAL Analysis: To avoid additional delays, DACA beneficiaries are encouraged to follow the Ombudsman’s recommendations when submitting DACA renewal requests. For more information, please visit BAL’s DACA Resource Center here.
