What You Need to Know if DACA Ends

UPDATE: On September 5, 2017 the president ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program effective March 5, 2018.

In terminating this program, about 800,000 young immigrants will be at risk for deportation.

In addition to the important information shared in this episode below, here is some more important information you need to know about the end of DACA:

1. First-time DACA applications received on or before September 5, 2017 will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Any initial applications for DACA or Employment Authorization associated with DACA received after this date will be rejected.

2. If your DACA expires on or before March 5, 2018, you may apply to renew your status for an additional two-year period provided you do so before October 5, 2017. These applications will be reviewed on a case by case basis. Any applications to renew your DACA status received after this date will be rejected.

3. New applications for travel documents (ie Advance Parole) associated with DACA will be rejected. Pending applications for Advance Parole will be closed and all application fees will be refunded. Advance Parole currently granted to DACA recipients will be honored, however, it may be revoked at any time.
