WESLACO – The debate over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program affects many people in the Rio Grande Valley.

They now have a seven-month wait ahead of them before the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision is expected.

Tuesday’s hearing reignited questions from local DACA recipients. Protestors gathered in Washington, D.C. and across the nation, including in the Valley.

Some dreamers continue to wait for a final decision, even after graduating college.

A coordinator with La Union del Pueblo Entero, or LUPE, explained many recipients are not using their services to renew their DACA permit.

She wants recipients to know permit renewals are still being processed and issued.

According to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, in the last quarter from April to June, there have been more than 103,000 DACA renewals received and the majority were accepted. View the data here.
