December 05, 2018


Non-Lawful Permanent Resident Under INA § 240A(b) for DACA Recipients

Non-LPR cancellation is a form of discretionary relief from removal that provides a path to lawful permanent residency to certain non-citizens placed in removal proceedings on or after April 1, 1997. Non-LPR cancellation is meant to benefit undocumented immigrants who have deep roots in the United States. Due to the long U.S. residence of DACA recipients, many of them may qualify to apply for non-LPR cancellation of removal ONLY if they are placed into removal proceedings.

The University of California applauds today’s decision by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that keeps in place the injunction preventing the Department of Homeland Security from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The court’s decision ensures that the 800,000 beneficiaries of DACA will be able to retain or renew their grants and continue to legally work, study, serve in the military, and live in the United States. The university encourages all eligible recipients to renew their DACA grants immediately.
