Matian Firm | La Liga Defensora Managing Immigration Attorney Nancy Reyes Guarderas Discusses Executive Action Granting Venezuelans Temporary Legal Status

(MENAFN – GetNews) Abogada Nancy Reyes Guarderas from Matian | La Liga Defensora is slated to appear on California radio and television to discuss the former president’s use of a little-known DED (Deferred Enforced Departure) program to provide temporary legal status to Venezuelans fleeing the humanitarian crisis.

Abogada Nancy Reyes Guarderas from Matian | La Liga Defensora is slated to appear on California radio and television to discuss the former president’s use of a little-known DED (Deferred Enforced Departure) program to help Venezuelans who fled the humanitarian crisis caused by Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro to grant temporary legal status.

DED is a similar program to Temporary Protection Status (TPS), under which recipients are protected from deportation and can obtain work permits. Unlike TPS, DED is granted directly by the President instead of the Ministry of Homeland Security.

The new policy postpones deportation of any Venezuelan citizen or non-national foreigner who was last habitually resident in Venezuela and has been in the United States since January 20, 2021.

Guarderas said: “Venezuelans have suffered for a long time and this is one of the greatest humanitarian crises in Latin America in many years. I am glad that the US is ready to help this vulnerable group of immigrants.

Those not protected under the program include:

  • Venezuelans who have voluntarily returned to Venezuela or their country of last habitual residence outside the United States
  • Venezuelans who have not continuously lived in the United States
  • Venezuelans convicted of a crime or two or more offenses
  • Venezuelans subject to extradition

The policy provides qualified Venezuelan nationals currently in the United States with 18 months of protection from deportation.

Nancy Reyes Guarderas is an expert on immigration rights and visas as she has been assisting and guiding her clients through the immigration process since 1998.

Guarderas has extensive experience filing affirmation and defense requests for their clients before the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service. She has also held hearings in the United States Immigration Court, and has taught and appealed to the Administrative Appeals Office, Immigration Board of Appeals, and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Guarderas has helped thousands of clients with direct services, conducted public relations for thousands of people, and trained hundreds of private and nonprofit lawyers, social workers, and law students through panels, training, and visiting professor opportunities at the USC’s School of Social Work and Loyola Law School.
