Providing Legal Support For Childhood Arrivals

"Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" — or DACA, for short — is an immigration policy in place that affects those who entered the U.S. without documentation as children, as well as those who later overstayed their visas. The guiding principle behind the policy is that young people should not be punished for decisions made by their parents. Under the Obama administration, this meant protection from removal proceedings and greater access to government services for so-called "Dreamers" — the nickname for childhood arrivals, after the related DREAM Act.

Practicing Immigration Law In Tumultuous Times

Under the Trump administration, DACA and other immigration policies for people in Austin and elsewhere are now in flux. The Department of Homeland Security has officially halted DACA, but President Trump has signaled his desire for much more restrictive immigration policies. Because the law stands to change in the near future, it's more important than ever to have an experienced attorney by your side to help you stay up to date and make informed decisions based on the most current information.

The attorneys at The Tellez Law Firm, PLLC will help you stay up to date on the latest developments so you can successfully file for DACA, apply for DACA and generally navigate the legal system even as our laws are in flux.
