Standard Operating Procedure for Deferred Action (non-DACA)
  • Shoba Sivaprasad Wadhia

In January 2015, I filed a FOIA request seeking updated internal policies and correspondence regarding deferred action (non-DACA) with USCIS. In August 2015, I received a response containing the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) (version date 3/7/2012) and some e-mails regarding the jurisdiction that applies when a person's case has been administratively closed. Attached is the Cover Letter and Response. Notably, the SOP provided is identical to the one I received through FOIA in 2013, leading to the conclusion that 1) the SOP has not been updated in three years; or 2) the updated version was not provided.
