On September 5, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the DACA program would be terminated effective March 5, 2018. This 6-month period gives Congress a chance to enact legislation to protect the Dreamers. What does this mean for those who have DACA and those who were planning to apply?
No more Initial DACAs applications will be accepted. If you have not applied for DACA, you are no longer able to file an application.
No More Advance Parole will be granted as of today. For those who have applied for permission to travel abroad, USCIS will not make a decision on your application and your application fee will be refunded to you.
If your DACA expires by March 5, 2018, you have until October 5, 2017 to submit your renewal.If you have DACA, and your permit expires on or before March 5, 2018, your renewal must be received by USCIS no later than October 5, 2017. Please contact my office and I will assist you with the filing of your renewal, free of charge.
