On September 5, 2017, the Trump Administration announced an end to the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program by terminating the program created under President Obama. This means that if you already have DACA, your DACA and work permit will continue to be valid until its expiration date. If you have a DACA application (initial or renewal) that was accepted for processing by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) through September 5, 2017, the agency will continue with the process of adjudicating your application. If you have a permit that will expire between now and March 5, 2018, you may apply for a two-year renewal of your DACA, but your request must be accepted by USCIS by October 5, 2017.
This site will be updated as we learn more about any changes. We encourage you to refer back to this document periodically to have the most up-to-date information.
