The Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and the expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Expanded DACA) programs have been stopped by the U.S. Supreme Court. As with any talk about changes in immigration law, many people will try to prey on immigrants by giving them false hope and encouraging them to hand over money for empty promises. Immigrants have squandered thousands of dollars, been placed in removal proceedings, and lost any hope of becoming eligible for future benefits, because they followed the wrong advice. To combat those fraud attempts, we must pass on accurate and accessible information. Please check this website for up-to-date information here.
Even though Admin Relief has been blocked, you may still want to talk to a lawyer or BIA Accredited Representative. There is a chance that you may be eligible for another immigration benefit. Only seek help from an experienced immigration lawyer, BIA Accredited Representative, or trained immigration navigator to determine, or assess preliminarily whether you may be eligible for an immigration benefit.
