On September 5, 2017, the Trump Administration rescinded the June 15, 2012 memorandum entitled “Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion with Respect to Individuals Who Came to the United States as Children,” which established the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”).
If you are a DACA beneficiary whose current benefits (deferred action and work authorization) will expire between September 5, 2017 to March 5, 2018, you have until October 5, 2017 to file your DACA renewal request and work permit renewal application. If your DACA status and work permit is expiring on or before March 5, 2018, please call our office immediately at 972-445-4114 to schedule an appointment to renew your DACA. The deadline to file is October 5, 2017.
If your current DACA benefits expire after March 5, 2018, you can no longer renew DACA. Pending DACA renewals will be adjudicated.
USCIS will not accept any new DACA “initial requests” after September 5, 2017. Pending “initial requests” will be adjudicated.
No new advance parole/travel permits based on the DACA program will be approved. Pending advance parole applications will be denied and USCIS fees will be refunded to the applicant.
