Know Your Rights
Everyone who lives in the U.S. is given certain rights, like the rights to freedom of speech and freedom to practice your religion. These rights apply to everyone, regardless of their immigration status. These guidelines from the Immigrant Legal Rights Council provide practical steps for what to do if you or someone you know has an encounter with agents from ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement). We recommend that you print this document and keep it with you to reference if necessary.
Recent DACA News
On Friday, June 28th, the Supreme Court announced that it will hear the pending court cases concerning “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” or “DACA.” Three DACA court cases are currently pending and all will be considered together during the next term. Most likely the Supreme Court will not issue a decision until early 2020. In case the decision results in changes to DACA eligibility, World Relief encourages all DACA recipients in need of renewal to seek legal counsel prior to the court hearing, which will be on November 12, 2019.
