DACA Field Report

DACA Numbers Game

Rating: 3 votes, 5.00 average.
The New York Times reports that 72,000 applications for deferred action for childhood arrivals have been received in the first three weeks of the program. Additionally, USCIS Director Mayorkas indicated that a small number of approvals has been already granted even though this figure has not been disclosed yet. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that the number of applications received was 40,000. It is possible that this figure might have included only forms that were adjudicated and did not include forms in the feeing stage. Mr. Mayorkas states that his agency was expecting a higher number of applications and had prepared its 18,000 employees for the task. However, the complexity of the forms, fear to put their family members at deportation risk, and the steep USCIS adjudication fees has deterred many eligible individuals from applying to the program. Mr. Mayorkas stated that "If somebody submits documents that show by the preponderance of the evidence that they meet the guidelines, we are poised to move the cases as quickly as possible." We expect that the number of applications received will be higher in November and December. We look forward to receiving the figures of the actual applications approved and EADs issued, which might be what eligible people who are on the fence about applying might be waiting for.
