On June 28, 2019 the U.S. Supreme Court announced that next term it will hear the case challenging the termination of DACA. In the meantime, anyone who has had DACA in the past can continue to apply for renewal.
* No new initial applications for DACA will be accepted.
* If you have DACA now, your deferred action and employment authorization (work permit) are still valid until their expiration date.
* If you have a renewal or initial application pending, it will still be adjudicated.
* No new or pending applications for advance parole (travel) will be processed, but filing fees will be refunded.
* You may apply for renewal only if you have been granted DACA before. See USCIS’ instructions.
As always, please talk to a reputable immigration attorney before applying for anything or making travel plans. If you have questions, you are welcome to call Disciples Immigration Legal Counsel.
