Updates on DACA Advance Parole 63 views•Sep 14, 2020
Advance Parole is an application filed with USCIS which allows an immigrant to travel outside of the United States and return lawfully. USCIS would consider Advance Parole applications for DACA holders if they could establish an educational, employment based, or humanitarian basis for the need to travel. Unfortunately, following the Supreme Court DACA decision a few months ago, Acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf issued a memorandum on DACA and advance parole stating that USCIS would now only consider issuing an Advance Parole if urgent humanitarian reasons or a significant public benefit is established. So those with the need to travel for work, study abroad, or even visit sick or aging family members may be precluded under this new interpretation.
