Actualización de Acción Diferida para las Llegadas de la Niñez

Avanzando

Querido lector-

Como usted probablemente vio en las noticias, Trump ha decidido poner fin a la Acción Diferida para los llegados de Niñez (comúnmente conocido como DACA). No creemos que esta decisión representa la opinión de la mayoría de los estadounidenses. Sin embargo, es la realidad bajo la agenda de la administración actual. Con la eliminación de DACA, cientos de miles de jóvenes, Soñadores indocumentados, estarán vulnerables y en riesgo de ser deportados. El impacto negativo se sentirá mucho más allá de los propios recipientes.

Los recipientes de DACA son padres, cónyuges y hermanos de estadounidenses; son nuestros vecinos, amigos y personas de las que dependemos diariamente sin darnos cuenta ni saberlo; son estudiantes, empleados y dueños de negocios. Sólo han conocido a Estados Unidos como hogar y sólo lo han amado y mejorado a pesar de que el país le dio la espalda. He tenido la buena fortuna de conocer y trabajar con muchos recipientes de DACA, los indocumentados y sus seres queridos. Somos uno mismo. En muchos sentidos, son la esencia de lo mejor en este país y reflejan lo que llamamos cariñosamente "americano". Simplemente están tratando de vivir la vida lo mejor que pueden y contribuyen positivamente al único país que han conocido y llamado hogar.

El Congreso debe recoger la batuta del DACA y aprobar legislación para los Soñadores. Antes de la decisión de Trump, algunos miembros clave del Congreso republicanos expresaron su apoyo a los Soñadores y para mantener DACA. La semana pasada, incluso el Procurador General de Tennessee dijo que ya no quería desafiar a DACA en los tribunales.

Contacte a sus representantes:
Póngase en contacto con sus miembros locales del Congreso y anime a todos los que conosca a hacer lo mismo - para insitar a sus representantes a aprobar leyes para DACA y Soñadores. Utilice este enlace del Centro Nacional de Justicia para Inmigrantes de Heartland Alliance para ver cómo puede comunicarse con sus miembros locales del Congreso. También puede encontrar a sus representantes utilizando este sitio. La Coalición de Illinois para los Derechos de Inmigrantes y Refugiados también cuenta con grandes recursos informativos y oportunidades de voluntariado para unirse a la lucha por Soñadores y DACA.

Con todo lo que está sucediendo en el mundo, desde la amenaza de la guerra con Corea del Norte hasta las víctimas que luchan con las consecuencias de Harvey para aquellos que ahora se están preparando para el huracán Irma, estamos extremadamente entristecidos (aunque no sorprendidos) de que Trump ha atacado cruelmente a esta vulnerable población de jóvenes que sólo ha demostrado ser una fuerza positiva y contribuyente en nuestro país. Ahora es el momento de exigir que el Congreso actúe.

Usted verá muchas noticias e información sobre DACA en las próximas horas y días. Tenga cuidado, ya que alguna informacion puede no ser creible. Los detalles de la eliminación gradual no están completamente claros, pero aquí hay alguna información directamente de USCIS:

USCIS decidirá, de manera individual, caso por caso:
* Las solicitudes iniciales pendientes de DACA, archivadas correctamente y solicitudes asociadas para documentos de autorización de empleo (EADs) que han sido aceptadas a partir del 5 de septiembre de 2017.
* Las solicitudes pendientes de renovación de DACA, archivadas correctamente y solicitudes asociadas para EAD de beneficiarios actuales que han sido aceptadas a la fecha de este memorándum y de beneficiarios actuales cuyos beneficios vencerán entre el 5 de septiembre de 2017 y el 5 de marzo de 2018 que han sido aceptados a partir del 5 de octubre de 2017.
Las personas que no hayan presentado una solicitud antes del 5 de septiembre, para una solicitud inicial bajo DACA, no pueden aplicar. USCIS rechazará todas las solicitudes iniciales recibidas después del 5 de septiembre, 2017.

  • Complicated N400 case!

    “I found Milla & Associates through Avvo as he had great ratings and reviews by previous clients. I had a fairly complicated case of immigration for naturalization N400) through a spouse as I had been out of the country for very large chunks of time. Robert was an excellent guide in terms of how to approach the case and what documents to include/exclude in order to make my case stronger. He was thorough with his research and very well acquainted with the whole process. Despite my super complicated case, he put it forward in such a way that it was a smooth approval. He made our immigration journey stress free and having him next to me at my interview made me feel confident since he is very competent! I highly highly recommend him for any immigration law cases”

  • Successful case for marriage-based green card

    “Milla & Associates delivers an incredible quality of legal representation and it was an absolute pleasure to work with Robert Milla, Tatiana Alonso, and their team. My husband and I entrusted them with my adjustment of status and green card application. Our case was handled very efficiently, they answered our questions at every stage and kept us informed of the next steps and developments throughout the process. Not only that, Robert is highly experienced and has an incredible understanding of immigration law on top of being genuine, personable and transparent. It is really hard to be able to find a good attorney that genuinely cares about the case, he is trustworthy, and I can tell that he does his work with his heart. My adjustment of status/green card was approved within a week from the interview, and I received my conditional green card in the mail a few days after receiving the approval notice. Robert and his team definitely made the entire process seamless. I would strongly recommend Robert Milla for anyone who is looking for a great immigration attorney and to be put in the best position possible with obtaining a green card. Thank you, Robert, for making my husband and I feel at ease as we navigated through uncharted waters. We are so grateful for you!”
