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.

  • We strongly recommend Robert

    “My wife and I hired Robert to handle my wife's greencard process while I was busy studying an MBA and could not dedicate much time to the process. We consulted with other lawyers and decided to go with Robert because he was very direct in his answers, gave honest and knowledgeable advice and because from day one he provided first class support and clarity on what the process would be like. My wife benefited greatly from his calmed demeanor and openness to quickly answer our questions and accommodate solutions for our case. We strongly recommend Robert, you will find a lawyer you can trust and that will help and guide your throughout every step of the process.”

    “Result: Application for adjustment of status to permanent resident (“green card”) approved Robert Milla has been our attorney for years as my wife and I waited and waited for DOMA to be struck down and he was right there the minute it happened to represent us in attaining her Permanent Resident Status. We couldn’t be happier with Robert's expertise, availability to talk with us and answer all our questions and skillfully represent us throughout the past few years of this important process. I highly recommend him to any family with immigration issues. He is very knowledgeable and accessible to his clients.”

  • The best legal group I've ever had the pleasure of working with in my life.

    “Justin Hoefflicker and his team went above and beyond to help us every step of the way. We are a small digital health startup, and without Justin, our company would potentially not be able to continue operations. He helped us secure an H1B visa for our Technical Co-Founder, and went above and beyond through preparation of materials, explaining the process, answering a million follow-up questions (that's an understatement), taking the time to meet and discuss contingencies when he absolutely didn't have to, helping us file a complete Request-for-Evidence (RFE) and not charging us for the additional work, and ultimately, helping us secure the H1B in the end. Even if we hadn't gotten the H1B, I'd still be submitting this review as it's fully merited and Milla & Associates is by far the best legal group I've ever worked with. They're honest, they actually care, they do great legal work at appropriate rates, they actually follow through, they get everything done on time, and they go above and beyond to make sure expectations are set correctly in what can be a very difficult and touchy legal-sphere (immigration). I am extremely grateful for having had the opportunity to work with them, and I wish we had a similar experience with every legal group we had to work with. Thank you Justin and team.”

  • Mr. Robert is an amazing, humble and extremely knowledgeable ...

    “Words just cannot express how grateful I'm to Robert Milla for all his efforts and dedication towards my case. It was a very complicated case and I had consulted a lot of attorneys in Chicago who were just not that confident in proceeding with my case. Then I met Robert and his knowledge and determination showed me light when I was almost about to give up. He was confident and Knowledgeable and did a meticulous job with my case especially when ​I had very less time to apply. I'm so relieved and happy that I got my green card within a week of the interview. Mr Robert is an amazing, humble and extremely knowledgeable attorney. He gives a lot of attention to detail. I'll never forget that he helped me when I was most in need of help. It was easy to work with ​Robert and legal assistant Maria. They made the process very smooth and kept me informed throughout the process.​ ​I couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, friendly, and courteous attorney.​ ​I appreciate His genuineness and humbleness. I highly recommend him for all immigration needs and I will definitely use your services again in future.”

  • Great job guys!!!

    “My husband and I hired Robert to handle our marriage based residency case. We met with several attorneys. Robert was our last one. He was very patient and answered all of our questions. We didn't feel rushed at all. After we walked out of the consultation my husband and I looked at each and knew Robert was the one. This process can be complicated, but Robert and his team made it very simple. His legal assistant, Daniel, was a pleasure to work with. They were both very responsive, which is important in dealing with these matters. He prepared us for our final interview and everything turned out great! No problems, no issues. Great job guys!!!”
