USCIS Re-Opens Previously Pending Non-Military Deferred Action Requests

9/2/19 AILA Doc. No. 19090303. Deferred Action, Removal & Relief

USCIS announced that it will reopen non-military deferred action cases that were pending on August 7, 2019. Letters will be sent this week re-opening these cases. On August 7, USCIS stopped its consideration of deferred action for non-military requestors and sent out letters noting it was no longer entertaining such requests. USCIS will now complete the caseload that was pending on August 7. Deferred action related to military members and DACA was not affected by the August 7 action, and USCIS says that consideration of such cases is ongoing.
