At least 33 young immigrants were denied DACA application renewals due to unusually long Postal Service delays.
One applicant who asked to be identified as José mailed his permit renewal on September 14. His paperwork did not arrive at its destination until October 6 – one day after the deadline.
Although the U.S. Postal Service took the blame, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency said it could appeal the decision since DACA is an executive order signed by former President Obama and not a statute.
