Newhouse Calls For DACA Deadline Extension

Congressman Dan Newhouse is joiinng with others in the House wanting the Department of Homeland Security to request an extension to the deadline for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) permit renewals. The current deadline is Thursday but Newhouse and his colleagues want to extend it until at least Jan. 18, 2018. In a statement Newhouse says the fast-approaching deadline to renew their status will place thousands of Dreamers in legal limbo unless a workable solution is put in place and he is requesting that the administration provide additional flexibility for Dreamers while Congress works on a legislative solution.
