Judge Andrew Hanen of the Southern District of Texas is expected to hear arguments over DACA on August 8, 2018. Judge Hanen is the same Judge who ruled against the expansion of DACA under the Obama administration. Given his prior decision, Judge Hanen’s ruling will likely disrupt and may even end DACA’s continued processing.
In other words, there is a significant risk that DACA Renewals will no longer be accepted by USCIS. Because of this risk, many immigration advocates are recommending DACA recipients apply to renew NOW.
So, if your DACA card expires between July 2018 and January 2020, I recommend you apply immediately! I will be offering extended availability, including evenings and weekends until Monday, August 20th, 2018.
