Donald Trump announced his plans to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration (DACA) policy.
We are waiting for an official memo with the details but here is what is being reported by many media sources:USCIS will not be accepting any new DACA applications meaning no one that is not already a part of the program can apply.
Anyone whose DACA expires between now and March 5th, 2018 can apply for a renewal of their DACA and must do so by October 5th. Those with a permit expiring after March 6th, 2018 will not be able to renew and their permit will expire on the date listed on their DACA.
There will be no new renewals after March 5th.
During this difficult time, know that there is a community behind you--a community that has faced losses and only come back stronger. We hope you will join us as we recommit to fighting for the dignity and protection of all of 11 million of us.
This is our home, we are #HereToStay, and we aren’t going ANYWHERE. Many are understandably scared right now, but we have each other: so we will HEAL, renew our STRENGTH and FIGHT.
