CLINIC is pleased to announce the launch of our new self-directed e-learning course, "Getting the Facts: Criminal Records in Immigration Cases"  that is designed to help you learn how to obtain criminal records and understand and interpret those records. Immigration advocates know that every aspect of immigration law may be impacted by having a criminal record; a client's criminal history may prevent eligibility for a benefit, subject a client to removal, or lead to a negative exercise of discretion. 

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) had planned to begin accepting applications for the expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on February 18, 2015 and for the new Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program on May 19, 2015. Unfortunately, DHS has delayed the launch of both expanded DACA and DAPA due to a federal court decision temporarily halting their implementation.

Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him.” Joseph rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed for Egypt. He stayed there until the death of Herod, that what the Lord had said through the prophet might be fulfilled, “Out of Egypt I called my son.”
