DACA: Current Status and Options (UPDATED June 2017)

Original DACA Remains in Effect


In light of the Trump Administration’s June 15, 2017 announcement that it is formally ending Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and the expansion of DACA, both of which were never implemented because of court challenges, we updated our practice advisory on the 2012 DACA program clarifying that DACA has not been terminated and remains in effect, and that USCIS continues to accept initial and renewal applications.
