Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

 

As you may recall, the President announced on September 5 the end of the DACA program and set a six-month window for Congress to act. The Department of Homeland Security stopped accepting new DACA applications, and indicated that existing DACA recipients with permits that would otherwise expire on or before March 5, 2018 could apply for renewal only if they did so by October 5.

Below please find some helpful websites:


  • DACA Advocacy Information—The National Immigration Law Center maintains a webpage dedicated to following the developments related to DACA and with helpful links to resources and support: https://www.nilc.org/issues/daca/ 
  • Resources for DACA renewal fee—A number of legal aid organizations are providing free legal clinics for DACA renewals, but many beneficiaries are having difficulty in quickly generating the $495 DHS required for the renewal.
