Practice Advisory: Advance Parole for 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."  - AIC LAC, Aug. 28, 2013.  Copyright © 2013 American Immigration Council and Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc.
