USCIS Revises Guidance on Unlawful Presence Policy Focused on Students

Judge Orders Reinstatement of DACA Pending 20-Day Hold

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued a revised final policy memorandum updating the recently implemented unlawful presence policy that changed the way USCIS calculated unlawful presence for foreign students and exchange visitors.

On August 3, 2018, Judge John D. Bates of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of fully reinstating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program but stayed the effective date of the court order for 20 days to allow the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) time to appeal.
