On July 16 2021, a Texas federal judge ordered immigration to stop approving new first-time DACA applications. IMPORTANT: The judge’s order does not affect people who already have DACA or stop immigration from approving DACA renewals. Current DACA cards remain valid and people who already have DACA can continue to submit renewal applications. We encourage anyone who is eligible to renew their DACA to do so.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
IMMIGRATION IS NOW ACCEPTING NEW DACA APPLICATIONS & RENEWALS: On December 7 2020, immigration began accepting new DACA applications again. President Biden has also confirmed that he plans to continue the DACA program. Because courts could make further changes, we recommend consulting a trusted immigration provider for the latest updates before applying.
Initial DACA Requirements:
Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS)
Temporary Protection Status (TPS)
Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
