LAC and CLINIC Release Practice Advisory on Advanced Parole for DACA Recipients

Released on Wed, Aug 28, 2013

Washington, D.C.—The American Immigration Council’s Legal Action Center (LAC), in collaboration with the Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC), is pleased to announce the release of a new practice advisory, Advance Parole For Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Recipients. One of the benefits of DACA is that a recipient may seek permission – through a process known as “advance parole” – to travel abroad temporarily for humanitarian, educational, or employment purposes. This practice advisory provides guidance on advance parole eligibility for DACA recipients; outlines how a DACA recipient may apply for advance parole; addresses the legal issues that can confront a DACA recipient considering travel on advance parole, including any potential risks; and finally, covers the impact that the travel may have on the DACA recipient’s future immigration benefits.
