    On August 8, 2018, there will be a preliminary injunction hearing in Texas v. Nielsen (S.D. Tex. – Judge Hanen). On or after this date, Judge Hanen will decide whether to issue a preliminary injunction against the DACA program — possibly blocking USCIS from accepting DACA applications, including renewals.

    This means that, as early as mid-August, USCIS could stop accepting renewal applications. Eligible DACA recipients are encouraged to consult with an attorney and submit their renewal applications as soon as possible.

    We urge you to act today to protect Illinois immigrant communities by calling Governor Rauner at 217-782-0244 and ask that he sign SB 34 (VOICES Act), SB 35 (Safe Zones Act), and SB 3488 (No Registry Act). The VOICES Act will help immigrant survivors of domestic violence and trafficking; the Safe Zones Act will protect immigrant families while they’re learning at school or getting care at a hospital, and the No Registry Act will prohibit Illinois from participating in any federal registry program that singles out any group based on religion or national origin.

    On behalf of the ILACHE Board

    Who are the so-called Dreamers? The Chicago Tribune’s Abel Uribe photographed more than 40 of these young immigrants from 12 countries to better understand who they are.

    What he discovered is that recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, consider themselves American in every way. They are engineers, parents, lawyers, chefs, social workers, technology specialists and students.

    Illinois has the nation's third-largest population of immigrants covered by DACA, an Obama-era program that the Trump administration wants to "wind down." Congress is divided over whether to create new protections for these young people who, through no fault of their own, arrived in this country as minors.
