Hope returns for DACA, as a DHS report revealed that 171 new applications for DACA US immigration were approved between November 14, 2020, and the end of 2020. There were 2,713 applications made in total out of which at least 500 were rejected or denied.
Nicholas Garaufis, a US District Judge, recently gave an order to the federal government to issue a public notice that states that new applications for DACA immigration will be accepted. They will be accepted on the terms existing before Donald Trump suspended the program in 2017.
As of now, the DACA immigration program protects about 650,000 people from getting deported from the US. These people are also deemed eligible for work permit to work in USA.
Besides processing new applications, USCIS has claimed that approved 61,844 DACA renewals, rejected 2,842 applications, and denied 326 applications towards the end of 2020.
The President-elect Joe Biden has expressed his resolve to reinstate DACA fully and provide a route to US citizenship through this immigration program. The latter is however subject to congressional approval.
