3 AMAZING (& Wacky) Immigration News You Cant Miss
Seems like Christmas came early (or late?) for the undocumented population of Illinois. The House of Representatives of Illinois approved SB 957, which would grant temporary driving permits to qualifying undocumented immigrants. Yes, this means ALL undocumented immigrants (not just DACA beneficiaries) can apply for a license. A huge step froward for Illinois! For more information visit the ICIRR website.
Note: The bill goes into effect TEN MONTHS after being signed by the Governor. Let’s hope that he signs it sooner rather than later.
You can’t make this up folks! Just a few days ago, a reporter spotted this t-shirt as part of Taco Cid’s employee uniform. The shirt, which depicts a trap that lures “illegals” with tacos, has been the subject of a heated debate over the past few days - unsurprisingly enough, the restaurant’s owner is defending her shirt and actually selling it to the public! (for $35 a pop, you can donate to DACA scholarship).
What a great way to sell tacos in South Carolina!
Racism+ Bad Tacos + Controversy = $ales.

The United States Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) has released the figures concerning the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) figures covering from September 15th - October 10th.
Check the screenshot above to see how fast the process have been for some. Personally, I find myself within the biometrics category, having gone to my local field office just yesterday for my appointment.
Which category are you in? Do you think the process is moving fast enough?
Getting a handful of these tomorrow. SO EXCITED!
