    I'll be sending you a private message with a copy of my resume, just so you can see how it looks, since I notice we're both similar in volunteering at schools. Good luck and I currently work as a receptionist/assitant to paralegal and believe it or not, I found the job on craigslist..

    I don't think so. It's a U.S. territory and you will only come across TSA agents. All you need to show them is your ID. If for whatever reason you come across Border Patrol, you just have to prove your Legal Presence to them. You aren't traveling from a foreign country into the U.S. or vice versa.

    mayra reacted to Santi in waiting too long?   
    Many people are right...
    I have been waiting since Sep 13th, the day of my bios.
    I have called a couple of times, and even reached the next level of customer service.
    I was told that everything was in order, and that I just needed to wait.
    Also, I mentioned that I couldn't check my status online and they told me that I would not be able do it.
    Bottom line: all we can do is wait.

    But whenever we get it, we gon' be like:

    Jose that was really informative thanks for posting.
    @everyone - Just a litte more patience. We all waited at least 5 years for this. Please keep busy, get involved with non-profit projects or help others file DACA. I know the waiting period is nervewrecking and all sorts of thoughts cross our minds but remember everyday you are a step closer. So, start planning for your future. I wished I would have looked into jobs before getting DACA just to get the feel for them and start going to interviews and stuff. It is a lot of work and the job market is super competitive. I got my EAD since Oct 22 and I am still job searching, Anyways good luck to everyone!!!

    My sister and I will both keep our crappy cars! lol Pontiac Grand AM and Mercury Cougar... But it is an AMAZING feeling getting pulled over that first time (the cops in my town know we didn't have licenses before and they like to stalk us) and being able to shove our licenses in their fat faces!! lol But another amazing thing will be to be able to register the car under our own state and being able to choose a better insurance plan (we found one for ppl without papeles but the rates are ridiculous!) and of course being able to buy Mama a new car! Family car!! SUV!! Helllooooo leg room for family trips!!! XD

    Below are most of my notes from the stakeholder's meeting with USCIS about DACA yesterday:
    Notes from USCIS Stakeholder meeting on November 19, 2012
    Last Friday the USCIS.gov/childhood arrivals wensite was updated. Later today there will be new updates to the filing tips, and new FAQs as well as translations into new languages.
    As of mid November almost 300,000 applications have been received. On September 12th the Service began deciding these cases. So far 50,000 cases have been decided. Cases must have biometrics completed before they can be reviewed. So far all cases are within the four to six month goal. The Service will provide regular updates about processing times and numbers.
    Will misdemeanor charges of No license affect eligibility? Traffic violations will not be considered as non-significant misdemeanors regardless of how the state classifies them. However many violations will cause the case to be evaluated under the totality of the circumstances to determine if the applicant poses a threat to safetly.
    Why are there differences in processing times? Generally cases are “first in, first in right” however there are “immaterial deviations” in that due to processing times at different service centers and adjudicators.
    Is a conviction for breath test refusal a significant misdemeanor? Unknown
    If a person is 14 years old now, can they apply later? Yes.
    How many denials are there so far? Unknown. Because an RFE allows 84 days to respond, and a Notice of Intent to Deny allows 30 days to rebut, there is insufficient data on denials so far.
    If a person is denied can they re-apply? Yes.
    Can a person apply if they satisfy all but one requirement? No
    What if a person made a false claim to citizenship? Those cases are very fact-specific. They are evaluated on a case by case basis.
    Can a person apply if they have a final order of deportation? Yes
    Can a person use employment records even if they show a false SS#? Yes
    Can a GED program in Spanish qualify an applicant? Yes
    If an applicant has an order of deportation and receives DACA, can they reopen their deportation based on the grant of DACA? Yes.
    If a DWI has been expunged, can an applicant qualify? Case will be reviewed under the totality of the circumstances.
    Note- Cases are reviewed based on the convictions, not the original offenses. In other words a DWI reduced to “wet reckless” does not necessarily disqualify one for DACA. However the Service is not precluded from looking at the original charge because DACA is discretionary.
    (This summary is courtesy of the Immigration Benefits for Dream Youth Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/katychavezdreamers )
    The “in school” requirement does not discriminate based on whether the program is faith-based or not.
    Advance Parole will be granted on a humanitarian basis, on a case by case basis.
    Is there news about the Provisional Waiver Program? Expect it to be available THIS CALENDAR YEAR.
    For updates about news about the Provisional Waiver program, check my Provisional Waiver page, I-601a Provisional Waiver Attorney
    I will post more news about DACA soon!

    mayra reacted to NilviaRR in RFE Discussion?!   
    Yes and for June 15, I'm praying you did SOMETHING that day... especially if you have a debit card and just throw away ur statements all the time (like I do) I went to the bank and they gave me my statements for a few months back... I highlighted the purchases I made that day (mcdonalds and insurance lol) and that was sufficient... if you don't have anything for that day specifically put in as much for the month of june... especially a whole lot for the days right before and after that day... Also, I make a lot of money too but as long as u put a lot of stuff down for ur expenses sheet I don't think you should have any problem ( like i included all of my college payments as well as a bunch of other little things that I spend on like gas, food, hygiene products, clothing, etc.) Again, Best of luck and stay strong!! Just a tiny little roadbump, but you'll make it through!!!

    Mayar their asking me for the samething my lawyer said for the PROOF OF PRESENCE IN THE UNITED STATES ON JUNE 15, 2012 they mean that you need to send something proving you where here on june 15, 2012. like something you bought or if you had a doctors appoiment that day. something like that , if you dont have anything for that day try sending stuff from a month before and a month after and i think you should be fine. i have a bank account and i bought some stuff that day so i plan on sending that, and on that day i went and asked for my medical record wich has the date and my name i will send that as well. best of luck

    mayra reacted to pswa83 in no lawyers get approved faster.   
    cant say that it's true or not. for me, personally, i think lawyers are too much of a middle man. if you think you have a chance of getting denied, then yeah, you should get a lawyer but if you have a straight forward case and sent in as much paper work that you have, then i think its just a matter of when an employee at USCIS gets to your case. and who really knows the process that the applications are processed. i mean some people who applied back in august, like i did, are still waiting to get approved. i was approved a week after my bio appt.
