7/16/21: DACA Update
Source / Immigrants Rising
On July 16, 2021, a Texas judge issued a ruling partially ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The program continues for those who currently or formerly had DACA, but is closed to those who would be applying for the first time.
- Can continue to submit renewal applications
- DACA protections and benefits will continue (ex. deportation protection and work permits)
- Pending renewal applications will be processed by USCIS
- People should continue to submit their DACA renewal application 120-150 days before the expiration date. USCIS has been experiencing delays processing DACA applications.
Unfortunately, no first time DACA applications will be processed at this time.
- Although USCIS will still accept applications from people applying for DACA for the first time, the court order prevents USCIS from processing or approving these applications
- USCIS has also stated that they will not refund any application fees
- Make an appointment to talk to a trusted legal service provider to learn how the changes to the DACA program may impact you and what other options are available. You can make an appointment for free legal immigration services HERE.
