In a remarkable decision, Chief Justice Roberts reinstated the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, allowing individuals who have DACA to renew their work permits for two more years, and allowing new applicants to submit their applications. Both sets of individuals will also be able to submit requests for travel documents (Advance Parole), for emergency travel outside the United States. Read more about the decision, and the impact below, as well as President Trump’s tweet that that he is still going to end a program that 71% of Americans want continued.
There will also shortly be a presidential announcement illegal stopping LEGAL immigration to the United States (with some exceptions). Stay tuned for that announcement, and the lawsuit that will quickly follow.

Kuck Baxter Immigration — In The News
Charles Kuck was quoted by the Times of India in “Class Action Lawsuit Against H-1B Denials for Market Research Analysts Gathers Steam.” Mr. Kuck said, “USCIS does not like being sued. The class action lawsuit actually resulted in USCIS re-opening and approving the plaintiff’s H-1B applications for market research analysts. We would love for more employers and employees to join our suit—there is no cost in doing so.” The article is at https://bit.ly/2AQrSCM
