Maxwell Street Legal Clinic would like to update you on Temporary Protective Status (TPS) Nicaragua and Honduras:
TPS Nicaragua has been cancelled, but they have a transition period until January 5, 2019. Hondurans have been automatically extended until July 5, 2018 due to a lack of decision by the DHS. All Nicaraguans and Hondurans who have TPS right now, need to re-register. We will contact our clients to start the process once we have the exact dates. We are still waiting for USCIS to send the official announcement and give us the registration window.


DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival)
AG Jeff Sessions announced on September 5, 2017 in a press conference that DACA had been rescinded. US Citizenship and Immigration Services had only accepted DACA initial cases on or before September 5, 2017. No initial DACA cases had been accepted afterwards. Those DACA cases that had been filed before that date will be adjudicated or were adjudicated on a case by case basis, just like previously. Anybody whose DACA expired between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 was able to file before October 5, 2017.
