* 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.
* If your DACA will expire on or before March 5, 2018, you can apply to renew. Your renewal must be received and accepted by USCIS by October 5, 2017. If your renewal is approved, you will be given the usual two years of deferred action and employment authorization. RENEW NOW! FIND A DACA RENEWAL CLINIC HERE.
* If your DACA will expire after March 5, 2018, you cannot apply to renew.
* No new or pending applications for advance parole (travel) will be processed, but filing fees will be refunded.
