Yesterday's Presidential election result is a huge relief for DACA Dreamers. There appear to be a large number of DACA Dreamers who had been hesitant to come foward to apply for DACA benefits because of uncertainty of the result of the election.
Now, since the President Obama
is reelected, the uncertainty for those DREAMers who have applied
for the DACA benefits and who have yet to come forward and apply
for DACA benefits has disappeared.
Considering the estigmte figure
of 1.7 million potential beneficiaries, it is anticipated that
there will be a huge new applicants coming out of the closets
and filing the DACA benefits. One wonders whether the USCIS will
have enough resources to handle such surge of applications within
a limited period of time with its limited resources.
the USCIS has been hiring new officilals for this program, but
until enough resources are recruited and properly trained, the
USCIS is likely to go through a stress in management of all different
types of applications and petitions.
