I don't know - I'm sorry. I should have more info. I just thought to ask. He has a work permit - I'm sure it has his picture.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I'm happy to hire an attorney IF I know it will lead to domestic flights at least until 2020.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I'm sorry. I'm traveling and need to keep my cc freed up. How do I put him directly in touch with you? Can we search by your code 22477:? Is it possible? That's all I need to know. If you don't mind please.
Immigration Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 4 months ago
I am going to opt out as the site is not able to obtain an card for him. Maybe another expert can assist. Sorry for the delay.

Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 15 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help. Also, please do NOT click on the Opt Out button because if you do, it would prevent me from communicating with you and then it could take a long time before another expert responds to you.

Sorry for the delay. I just ask that if the news is not good that you not shoot the messenger. Shooting the messenger is either leaving a negative rating (usually reserved for rude or unprofessional experts) or not leaving a positive rating at all.

How does he have a work permit? Did he get it through DACA? What country is he from?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
You're so kind. He is from Guatemala. I'm getting with him tonight and I'll have more information about his he got his work permit but I'm assuming another immigration attorney but I don't know. I have a gut feeling he has no knowledge of assistance from Daca. He came here at the age of 19. He's 46 now.
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 4 months ago

Then he probably does not have DACA. How does he have a work permit? Take your time. Respond later when you have the information.
