TPS for Yemeni Nationals

Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson designated Yemen for TPS, effective through March 3, 2017, due to the ongoing armed conflict there.  This designation means eligible Yemeni nationals, or people without nationality who last habitually resided in Yemen, can apply to temporarily remain in the United States during this period. They may also receive a work permit.

Only individuals who have continuously resided in the United States, and been continuously physically present, since September 3, 2015, are eligible to register for TPS for Yemen.

March 1, 2016, is the last day to register for TPS for Yemen.

My DACA application has been accepted, now what?

First off, congratulations! Now that you have your temporary authorization, you can get a driver’s license in Tennessee.  For more details on the requirements for obtaining a temporary driver’s license in Tennessee, visit their website at: http://www.tn.gov/safety/driverlicense/tdl.shtml

If you also received approval for work authorization, you should apply for a social security number.  For more information on the requirements for obtaining your social security number, please visit: http://www.ssa.gov/ssnumber/

New Executive Action for Immigration Reform – TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED

President Obama recently announced future changes in immigration.  This post is just a brief overview.  Basically, the new programs will expand the already successful Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to include more immigrants who arrived as children.  It will also include the parents of US citizen children and expand the use of the provisional waiver.  It is important to note that these applications are not yet available.  Stay tuned and for more information, visit the official website at: http://www.uscis.gov/immigrationaction

A federal judge in Texas has placed a temporary injunction on the expansion of DACA.  The Obama administration has appealed this ruling, nevertheless they have temporarily halted accepting applications under the new DACA criteria. Note that if you were eligible under the original DACA criteria (found here), you may still submit your application. They are also continuing to accept renewal applications.  The injunction applies only to the new expanded DACA.

What is deferred action for childhood arrivals?

Most importantly, deferred action does not give you legal status. It only allows you to stay her temporarily and at the discretion of immigration authorities.  There are MANY requirements to show you should qualify for deferred action.  I highly recommend you consult with an attorney before beginning any paperwork to make sure you qualify.  The two key components are that you arrived before reaching your 16th birthday and that you were under age 31 as of June 15, 2012.

This is only general information and not legal advice. For more information about your case, consult an immigration attorney.  www.galindoimmigration.com
