On September 5, 2017, President Trump announced via a statement from Attorney General Jeff Sessions that he was winding down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The DACA program, including associated travel and work benefits, will not terminate immediately. This advisory will help you determine how you’re being in the DACA program is affected by this news.
DACA is being phased out as follows:
- Those individuals who had not yet been able to file DACA applications (such as people who were not old enough yet) will not be able to file in the future.
- Those with initial applications pending on September 5, 2017 will have their cases adjudicated on a case by case basis.
- Those who have DACA that will expire between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 will be permitted to file extension applications of up to two years as long as their renewal application is filed before October 5, 2017.
- Those with DACA that expires after March 5, 2018 will not be permitted to extend their DACA approvals.
As long as people remain in DACA and don’t violate their DACA eligibility (such as by committing a crime), they are protected from deportation and can continue working.
