12/04/2020: DACA Update

Source / Immigrants Rising

On Friday, December 4, 2020, a New York judge ordered the federal government to restore the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to its original state.


The decision restores the DACA program completely. Initial, renewal, and Advance Parole applications will be accepted by USCIS.

Current or Former DACA Recipients

  • Can continue to apply to renew their DACA
  • DACA protections and benefits will continue (ex. deportation protection and work permits)
  • Who were issued a 1-year work permit in the last year, will be automatically extended by USCIS to 2-years.

New DACA Applicants

It is important that you speak with an immigration attorney to understand your situation and eligibility. See below for information about free legal services.

For frequently asked questions regarding these changes, click here.

Update: On December 7, 2020, DHS and USCIS updated their websites to comply with the court’s order.
