DACA Update

Filing DACA Applications in the Wake of Federal Court Rulings - American Immigration Lawyers Association (retrieved 11/19/2019)

NOVEMBER 6, 2019 - On November 12, 2019, the Supreme Court will hear several arguments in several cases challenging the Trump administration’s rescission of the DACA program. A decision could come as soon as early 2020. While there are no new changes to the DACA program at this time, clients who want to renew their DACA should submit their applications to USCIS as soon as possible given USCIS processing times and an impending Supreme Court decision.  

More information and FAQs are available from the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA).

New DACA applications are not being accepted.


Legal Resources

Obtaining competent immigration legal advice is important. We encourage immigrant families to find out about their rights and options. Some families may have mixed immigration status (having U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and undocumented family members in the same family). As a result, each family’s available options may vary. Please be aware that there are individuals who claim to provide immigration advice who are not licensed attorneys with experience in immigration law. Prior to engagement, we recommend that you verify that the practitioner is a licensed attorney with immigration law experience.
