COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Homeland Security has stopped accepting new DACA applications but continues to renew permits.
Numbers we found show that 154,000 individuals with DACA are facing permit expirations between now and March 5th, 2018.
Dreamers have a month—until October 5th to re-apply for renewal, that deadline is fast approaching.
A local law firm in the springs says now is the time to watch out for scammers.
"Ask if they are an attorney and then you can always ask to see this law license. They need to be license in some state in the Unites States. That's something any attorney should have at the ready,” explains immigration attorney Alexander Mcshiras.
