Our immigration services department provides our members with the resources, guidance and tools they need to navigate our complicated and unfair immigration system. Our office directly works with our members and their families to help them apply for citizenship or renew their DACA or residency.
We also offer citizenship classes and English classes free of cost to our members to ensure that when they apply to become a U.S. Citizen, they succeed.
On President Biden’s first day in office (January 20, 2021), he signed an executive order to preserve and fortify DACA. President Biden’s memo asks the secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Attorney General, to take all actions he deems appropriate to preserve and fortify DACA.
On December 4, 2020, a New York Federal court ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to restore DACA to its original form.
If you have never had DACA and are eligible, you can apply for the first time.
Advance Parole is back in its original form
Anyone who received a 1-year renewal of their DACA will automatically have their protections extended to two years
Renewals continue to be accepted
LUCHA aims to offer assistance to our community to apply for DACA whether it is an initial or renewal application. Please feel free to review the guidelines and make a consultation with us to assist you through the process!
