DACA disappointment

In light of Tuesday’s announcement about the termination of the DACA program, we want to share the facts as we know them at this point:

  • DACA status as well as Employment Authorizations will remain valid until the  expiration dates indicated on the cards.
  • DACA status expiring on or before March 5, 2018 can be renewed until October 5, 2017.
  • DACA status expiring after March 5, 2018 will NOT be renewed.

Our office is deeply disappointed by the decision to end the DACA program and we recognize the incredible difficulty this news creates for the thousands of people affected. As new developments take place regarding DACA, our office will continue to keep you updated.
