Approval of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) – September 6, 2017

Our client is a native and citizen of the Philippines.  He was brought to the U.S. before his 16th birthday and was a candidate for DACA due to this education, lack of criminal history, etc.  There has much discussion about DACA in recent months, including President Trump recently announcing that the program would be rescinded.  Regardless of President Trump’s decision though, because of our client’s timely request for DACA and the submission of necessary forms and supporting documents, he has been granted DACA until 2019.
