Recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals whose work permits expire before March 5, may apply for a two-year renewal if they submit their applications by October 5, according to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
Having rescinded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Obama-era order that granted dreamers relief from deportation, Mr. Trump has shifted the fate of almost 700,000 young immigrants to Congress. Congress has proved itself inept lately on many fronts, but here is one issue teed up and ready-made for success.
When asked if he ever blames his parents for his situation, A.G says "No, I understand that my parents were just thinking of me and my sister, and I am forever grateful for them". Since then, immigrant youth from red and blue states have been on Capitol Hill every day calling for a clean DREAM Act without risky enforcement add-ons, which would hurt our families and border communities.
DACA was a temporary action taken by the Obama administration, intended not to penalize kids who often had absolutely no say in their arrival in the United States.
The Hart-Celler Act of 1965 abolished the quotas of previous acts and ended policies based on race but also ushered in the surge of illegal immigrants that increased the number of undocumented immigrants from 540,000 in 1969 to 11.3 million in 2016.

Sen. Lankford told reporters he briefed Trump on the legislation during a recent telephone call.
"The President was fully engaged with that and was very supportive of the concept saying that's the way to go", Lankford said.
The Center for American Progress estimates that approximately 30,000 people will lose their jobs each month as their DACA status expires.
DACA applicants had to be younger than 31 years old when the program began in 2012. This 15-year timeline, of course, is a best-case scenario, barring any bureaucratic slow-downs or unforeseen circumstances.
Days later Trump said if Congress did not act within six months he would reconsider revoking Obama's executive order.
"I think we have to assume it [the chain multiplier] will still be high", she said. On Sept. 25, Democrats attempted to force a vote in the Republican-controlled House on the Dream Act using a measure called a discharge petition. "Democrats will not back down until Dreamers' future in our country is secured, and this discharge petition will advance this fight".
Dreamers is a reference to children who qualify for the DREAM Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors).
The RAC Act was introduced by a group of Republicans with relatively vulnerable seats, but as it became clear that Trump was going to end DACA, it's attracted the support of Republicans who are more straightforwardly conservative.When Gov. Rick Scott of Florida urged Trump not to leave DACA recipients out in the cold, he endorsed the RAC Act as a solution to the problem.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' executive committee on September 12 urged the Catholic faithful to advocate for the passage of the DREAM Act or similar legislation "as a prompt, humane and durable solution to this problem of greatest urgency". "It it an unconstitutional program, so that is constraining".
In fact, to avoid an even worse economic downturn, President Trump should welcome immigration.
Pelosi and Schumer also said Trump accommodated their demand that the deal not include funding for his long-promised wall on the U.S. -Mexico border.
He said the recipients were "making the country stronger", arranging schedule for the sides to file their arguments on the case, which will stretch into January, the Daily Newsreported.
