DACA: Current Status and What to do Now

February 7, 2017

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an American immigration policy started in June 2012 that allows certain undocumented immigrants to the United States who entered the country as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit.

During his campaign, President Trump said that he would terminate the DACA program. The DACA is still available and the government is still accepting and approving DACA initial and renewal applications. He has not terminated the DACA program yet, but it could be terminated at any time.

Here are recommendations from the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) on what you can do now.
