Republicans sue President Obama to try to stop the Deferred Action plans Obama announced on November 20, 2014.
The Republican lawsuits, including one filed by Sheriff Arpaio, have a very low probability of success.
President Obama announces Deferred Action for a number of immigrants. The requirements for this temporary program are:
Jeh Johnson, Secretary of Homeland Security, has announced the designation of Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone to Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for 18 months.
This designation allows citizens of those countries who are currently in the US to apply for TPS and work authorization even if they are out of status.
The US Department of State has issued the priority dates to be used by itself and USCIS for immigrant visas during the month of December.

USCIS is now accepting application to renew DACA. It has released a revised I-821D that will be the only form accepted for DACA renewals and new applications effective immediately. In addition to the I-821D, applicants must also submit an I-765.
The US Patent and Trademark Offices (PTO) records highlight why it is imperative that Congress increase the number of visas, both H-1B and immigrant visas.

USCIS has announced that it has received more than enough petition for both the Master’s cap and the regular cap, and that it will therefore hold lotteries in both categories to choose which of the applications received as of COB Monday, April 7th it will process.
Those selected will be receipted and processed.
Democrats in the House of Representatives have introduced a discharge petition in the House to try to force a vote on the immigration reform bill that the Republicans have essentially killed.
