He may have just parted this world, but Tom Petty’s song ‘Refugee’ should always be a powerful reminder for refugees and asylum seekers that although you may indeed be a refugee or an asylee, that:
“Everybody has to fight to be free, you see
You don’t have to live like a refugee;
No baby, you don’t have to live like a refugee”
Rest in Peace, Tom Petty

“Please note, USCIS (Homeland Security) says that the only renewals that will be granted are those for DACA recipients whose permits expire between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018. Renewals will not be accepted for those permits that expired earlier than September 5 or after March 5.
The permits will last two years even though the DACA program will end on March 5, 2018″
This has been found to be inherently true by most immigration practitioners:
“Often, migrants do not receive copies of deportation documents and have little understanding of the processes they have undergone and the related legal ramifications. When U.S. officials prevent migrants from accessing critical information and processes, they further deprive individuals of their possible legal opportunities to present immigration claims.
“Given the escalation of immigration enforcement, the problems identified in this report are only likely to multiply. If not addressed, the behavioral patterns leading to abuses could spawn mass constitutional rights violations.”

“We encourage community members at risk to review their safety plans and tips for how they can defend their rights if they encounter ICE,” said Mary Meg McCarthy, executive director, National Immigrant Justice Center. “All people have the right to remain silent. If stopped or arrested, you do not have to answer an immigration agent’s questions. If an immigration agent knocks on your door and does not have a warrant, do not open the door.”
“Since the court’s ruling, ICE appears to have ramped up its efforts to make the lives of Iraqis in custody so unbearable that they will ‘voluntarily’ sign away their rights to reopen their immigration cases or pursue asylum,” the ACLU explained. “The Iraqis have been singled out and denied food, water, and access to the restroom.”
Congress must act now and pass legislation, like the bipartisan Dream Act, to protect Dreamers from deportation. The President’s decision to end DACA has endangered the lives of nearly 800,000 Dreamers, who were brought to this country as children. These young people are integral to our country, communities, and economy. An overwhelming majority of the American public agree that granting legal status to Dreamers is the right thing to do. Join AILA in telling Congress to act now on legislation to protect Dreamers. Take Action today.
Naturalization is an important milestone in the path toward U.S. citizenship. The decision to apply for citizenship is a very personal one. To help you prepare, many community organizations and social service providers, including USCIS grant recipients, offer citizenship classes and assistance with the naturalization process.
