Statement on DACA

On Tuesday, September 5, 2017, the Department of Justice through an announcement made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, announced the end of the Obama Administration’s DACA program, which granted deferred action from deportation and employment authorizations to thousands of young people for renewable 2 year periods.

What you need to know:
• If you have a valid work authorization, you are allowed to remain using until its expiration date.
• If your work authorization expires between now and March 5, 2018, DHS will take renewal applications that are properly filed before October 5, 2017.
• DHS will not be accepting any new DACA application as September 5, 2017
• Any new applications that were pending prior to September 5, 2017 will be adjudicated on a case by case basis.

Progreso Latino is in full support of our DREAMers and we are actively reaching out to our clients that fall within the stated renewal period to ensure that those eligible to renew are submitting their applications in a timely manner.

We are also accepting walk-ins for any questions, concerns, or renewals Monday through Thursday from 9:00-5:00 at our office at 626 Broad Street, Central Falls, RI 02863. We can be reached at (401)728-5920 and ask to speak with someone in our Immigration Department.
