On January 9, 2018 the a federal district court in California issued a temporary order requiring the Trump administration to continue processing DACA renewals while the legal case continues. U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services has not yet announced procedures for resuming renewals. Please check back for updates.
On September 5, 2017 the Trump administration announced the end of the DACA program.
* 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 as of September 5, 2017, it will still be adjudicated.
* No new or pending applications for advance parole (travel) will be processed, but filing fees will be refunded.
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.
