DACA Update!

December 8, 2020 – Following a court order, USCIS has restored DACA to it’s full form. This means that first time DACA applications can be received, DACA renewals are restored to 2 years, and applications for advanced parole are open again.

July 28, 2020 — The Trump administration issued a memo with significant changes to the DACA program including a rejection of new applications. 

June 18, 2020 — The U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision finding that the Trump administration’s termination of DACA was (1) judicially reviewable and (2) done in an arbitrary and capricious way that violated federal law.
