Additional information on the End of the DACA Program:

On September 5, 2017, the President directed U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. As of September 5, 2017:

  • USCIS will continue to process all pending INITIAL applications ACCEPTED as of September 5, 2017.
  • USCIS will reject all other new INITIAL applications.
  • USCIS will continue to process all pending RENEWAL applications that have already been filed.
  • USCIS will continue to accept and process RENEWAL applications until October 5, 2017 from applicants whose DACA expires between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018. DACA recipients whose DACA has already expired are no longer eligible to renew.
  • USCIS will reject all INITIAL and RENEWAL applications received after October 5, 2017. If you are eligible to renew your DACA work permit, DO NOT WAIT until the October deadline. Come in for service NOW.

FAQs

My DACA expired before September 5, 2017 and I haven’t filed a renewal application yet, am I still eligible to renew by October 5, 2017?

"Unfortunately, no. If your DACA expired before September 5, 2017 and your renewal application was not received by USCIS by that date, you are ineligible to renew. According to DHS, only people with DACA that expires between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 are eligible to renew. This includes individuals whose DACA expired on or after September 5, 2017 and on or before March 5, 2018. Previously, DHS’s policy was that individuals could apply to renew their DACA within one year of the expiration date. The new change in policy was unexpected, abrupt, and not clearly communicated by DHS. Therefore, numerous groups are advocating that DHS revert to its previous policy and allow people with DACA that had expired before September 5, 2017 to renew. Advocacy continues on this topic, but DHS has not yet announced a policy change. In the meantime, continue collecting the documents you might need for renewal, save money for the filing fees, and continue to check reliable sources of information like the ILRC’s website for updates."
