Department of Homeland Security has suspended expanded DACA and DAPA (Parents) until the outcome of a court challenge to them. They are suspended until further notice.

The Texas Court's order does not affect the existing DACA. Individuals may continue to come forward and request initial grant of DACA or renewal of DACA pursuant to the guidelines established in 2012 (arrival prior to June 15, 2007).

NOTA: La clínica legal para DACA el 17 de octubre ha sido cambiado por el juez en Texas, 16 de febrero, 2015 - NO incluye DACA ampiada ahorita. Ya no pueden solicitar para DACA ampliada hasta que termine el caso en el corte.


Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is NOT the DREAM Act. It is a step toward the DREAM Act but we still need to fight to pass the DREAM Act so DREAMers have a path to citizenship.

Acciõn Diferida para Ciertos Inmigrantes Jõvenes: Deferred Action for Certain Young Immigrants:
¡No se deje Engañar! Don't Get Scammed!

Immigration Lawyers are urging those eligible for DACA to apply as soon as possible. If/When the Comprehensive Immigration Reform takes place, you will then be likely eligible to NOT pay a fine of $500 AND have your case expedited. You may be eligible for Citizenship as early as within five years of passage of the bill into law. Historically, any group which has received a protected status (like DACA) has never had it taken away, so there is no reason to fear the program will end in two years.

Some people came from as far away as Renton and Kirkland though our goal is to serve those in Skagit, Whatcom, Island, Snohomish and San Juan counties - those served by CCS Family Immigration Service (FIS) in Mount Vernon. FIS is the only BIA certified non-profit family immigration service in the five county area.

CCS Family Immigration Service, the American Immigration Lawyers Assoc., Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, Community to Community, KSVR, and Whatcom Community College are partnering with the SIRC to organize and present these legal clinics.
