Child from India gets DACA on second attempt

First attempt fails

B.P. is a citizen of India who entered the United States prior to 16 years of age. In August 2015, he filed I-821D, Application for Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) with the assistance of his prior attorney. His I-821D application had remained pending since then by the time he retained our office to assist him with the case in early April 2016. His DACA application was previously denied by USCIS in 2015 so this was his second application for DACA.

Second attempt success

Our office filed a mandamus complaint with the Federal Court in the Central District of California to compel USCIS to adjudicate the application. After the complaint was filed, USCIS issued a request for additional evidence to which we responded promptly. The application was approved in July 2016.
