USCIS has released a DACA toolkit! While this is a great primary resource for undocumented youth who want to learn more about the program, as well as community members who wish to help with the application, there is something unsettling about the smiling teen in the cover. 
DACA is only a band-aid on a larger problem, one that House Republicans sought to take away from us last Friday.

Hi! So I was just looking at something's about the renewal and apparently there is some news about it but I don't know how its going to be done. Maybe you can look a bit into it?

absolutely NOT. you need an additional permission… it’s a whole new application.

Hello. I need reassurance on something. My younger brother is graduating this month in San Diego. My mother is terrified of going, she is undocumented but has a legitimate driver's license from the state of California. Her fear is that she will be detained at the airport since SD is so close to the border. Does she have anything to worry about since she has a valid DL and that all you need to travel inside the US? Thanks.

I would suggest not to go… Unfortunately the drivers license isn’t enough, if she is pulled over she will be asked what her social security and status is. They will call Homeland Security to verify her status, it’s tricky and really hard right now. Congratulations on your brothers graduation and hope for the best for your family!

Also do you think they look closely at the names of the school? My transcript is kind of weird because I took some online classes. But my high school transcript has all the dates from 2011 to now. I also have all from middle and elementary school.

unfortunately they have been really picky about names matching up… so I would expect to have a delay on your application

Hey so I'm 17 and I'm going to try to get DACA. Can good grades help my chances of getting approved?

Nope. Grades are irrelevant, all that matters is that you graduate high school.

The Mayor of Atlanta, Kasim Reed, sent out this letter in support of in-state tuition for undocumented students. For those unaware, Georgia has a ban that prohibits undocumented students from accessing institutions of higher education.
Students protested the ban last month, urged state officials to lift the ban and allow undocumented students back into Georgia universities.

Historic victory!
Florida’s Republican Senate just passed a bill that allows undocumented immigrants to pay in-state tuition.
That means 17 year-old DREAMer Diego Ramirez (pictured, center) will be able to pursue his dream of studying civil engineering. And so many others like him.

#BRINGTHEMHOME: MIGUEL CEDILLO, FATHER OF TWO, VICTIM OF VICIOUS ATTACKS WANTS TO COME HOME TO HIS FAMILY!

xingonaaa:

Trigger Warning: Torture, Violence, Graphic Photos

Miguel Angel Cedillo was forced to return to Mexico with his wife and two U.S. citizen children because he was stopped for driving without a license. Despite knowing that life would be harder for his family, his wife and he knew that they could not be separated. It was until his family had been extorted under the threat of one of his family members being kidnapped and “returned in pieces” and having his entire family chased by a knife-wielding assailant that Miguel’s wife and children were forced by necessity to return to the United States without him.

After being brutally attacked and imaging his children growing up without a father, Miguel wants to return home, and his family and community need him!

UPDATE: Miguel Angel was DENIED credible fear and faced imminent deportation. An application for Prosecutorial Discretion has been filed. His son, Michael, needs him home!

TAKE ACTION - MAKE A CALL:

Durbins D.C. office - 202 224-2152 
Sample Script: Why has Miguel Angel Cedillo’s wife been locked out of the office? The senator was given the release form that was asked for. So why will he not make one call for Miguel Angel? His attorney filed for prosecutorial discretion already. I need you to make a call to ice asking that it be granted.

Luis Guiterrez 773-342-0774 
Sample Script: I’m calling to urge the rep to help Miguel Angel Cedillo TODAY. If you helped Elvira get released why will you not make calls for Miguel? He was tortured he has a wife and kid. We cannot let him get deported. His attorney filed for prosecutorial discretion already. I need you to make a call to ice asking that it be granted. His wife already talked to your office you know the case there’s no reason you shouldn’t be standing with him.

National ICE @ 202-732-3000 or 202-732-3100

Sample Script: “I am calling to ask that you allow Miguel Angel Cedillo (A# 206-270-525) back into the U.S. He and his family have been threatened by cartels. On two occasions, Miguel was chased and attacked. Being separated from his two U.S. citizen children and knowing his life has already been threatened is the reason he wants to come back to his home state of Illinois! His attorney filed for prosecutorial discretion already. I am calling to ask that it be granted! He has a USC wife and child that need him! “
