The path to legal immigration status for refugees, separated families, and potential new citizens is exceedingly complex, fraught with numerous hurdles and frequent changes. Access to affordable legal services continues to fall woefully short of meeting the demand, despite the fact that many are unable to navigate this path on their own and can even face detrimental consequences if they do.

As a result, many immigrants in the U.S. today live in fear and isolation, unable to truly rebuild a sense of home or belonging in the US.

But together, we can help.

For over 40 years, World Relief’s Department of Justice accredited Immigration Legal Services have served our immigrant neighbors and friends, providing the support and knowledge they need to obtain legal status for themselves and their families here in the U.S.

DACA policy will be codified in the Federal Register to prevent future litigation from trying to get rid of the protection the program has provided.


What this means:

    • There is still no pathway to citizenship
    • Renewals continue
    • Advance Parole is open
    • First-time applicants can apply, BUT DHS will not make a decision on those cases


It was published on August 30, 2022, and will go into effect on October 31, 2022. Due to pending litigation, NOTHING HAS CHANGED.
