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.

Nosotros en Milla & Associates continuaremos haciendo todo lo posible para ayudar a los Soñadores. Póngase en contacto con nosotros o con una organización de confianza para recibir información confiable sobre DACA, sus derechos y las leyes de inmigración en general. Esperamos mejores noticias en el futuro, y esperamos el día en que podamos celebrar decisiones basadas en los verdaderos valores de este país.

  • Excellent Lawyer!!

    “It was a great opportunity for having Robert Milla as my lawyer in adjusting my immigration status. I highly recommend him!! I consulted few lawyers before but when the first time I met Robert, I felt so comfortable and decided to hire him right away. I am really thankful and very satisfied with his services. Until now I still can't believe that it's not even a week after the interview, I got my Green Card so quickly! I will definitely continue my business with him until I get my citizenship and to help out my family to get here in the US. And also his assistant, Maria did a great job on helping me and answering all my questions regarding my case.”

  • Highly recommend

    “I highly recommend Robert Milla. I was recommended to Mr. Milla by a friend of mine who used him for her permanent residency application as well. Both my husband were touched by the fact that Robert took the time to get to know us during our first meeting with him, before we began the application process. Throughout the process, Robert was very helpful answering any questions we had and educating us on our legal rights. I was a nervous wreck on the day of my permanent residency interview, and Robert put all my fears at ease by assuring me that I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Rest assured, Robert will be my choice as I go to apply for my citizenship in the next few years! Result: Application for adjustment of status to permanent resident (“green card”) approved”

  • Very satisfied, i have other petitions too, the fight is not ...

    “At first i was curious of what Lawyers (in general) do to make their income and i wasn't impressed until i see the result, that is just being me (Marine Vet). I learned that he is half Filipino, but that didn't change my opinion about lawyers even if he is a son of a fellow Marine Vet. With his high caliber of knowledge in/on immigration law, he walks and talks with the mission on his every foot steps. I highly recommend him to every Filipino and Military Veterans. I have been petitioning my other siblings ever since my father passed away and i will have to call him again to save my day to bring my family here in USA just like what my father wants.”

  • Robert has been absolutely amazing!

    “Robert has been absolutely amazing! My husband and I used his services for our marriage based green card application. Our case was not complicated, but we are so happy we hired Robert. He was nothing but helpful and would always make time to schedule a meeting with us or jump on the phone to guide us through the process and answer our (many) questions. On top of him being friendly and approachable, he knows the immigration law inside out. We can not recommend Robert enough to anyone applying for a marriage based permanent residence.”

  • I highly recommend Justin

    “My wife and I worked with Justin Hoefflicker on my immigration case. Justin was very reassuring from the beginning and set out realistic expectations for both of us. He is very knowledgeable And confident which put us at ease. He made sure we understood all the steps ahead of us and was always available to answer our questions/concerns.

  • Knowledgeable and confident

    “Robert worked on my case that was hopeless to be solved for the past 8 years, spending a huge amount of money with other lawyers. Robert said it from the beginning and told me what would it take to get this done. Despite my doubts, Robert stayed consistent with his answers and confident with the outcomes. Finally, I got an approval letter from USCIS for my wife. Thank you Robert for everything you have done for me!”
