Immigration Support @ UNLV

By cbrombosz on July 30, 2019 4:37 PM | Permalink

The Trump administration rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) on Oct. 5, 2017. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is no longer accepting new DACA applications. However, on January 9, 2018, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California halted DACA’s termination and granted a temporary order requiring USCIS to continue accepting renewal applications.

U. S. citizenship is not required for admission at UNLV, and our doors remain open to all students who seek education and the opportunities it provides.
