En Español ¿Qué Debo Saber Si El Programa DACA Se Termina?
EXPIRATION DATES AND RENEWAL
This announcement does not automatically end DACA for anyone. Current DACA documents are valid until the expiration date.
- Eligible people whose first DACA applications have been filed and are pending should expect that those applications will be approved once for a two-year period but will not be renewed after that.
- Eligible people whose renewals are pending should expect that their renewal will be processed and will be valid for two years but will not be renewed after that.
- People who have not yet applied to renew but whose DACA expires between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018, can apply for renewal one final time as long as that application is received by USCIS before October 5, 2017.
- People whose current DACA does not expire until after March 5, 2018, will not be allowed to renew.
- Based on the current information released by USCIS, people whose DACA had expired before September 5, 2017 and who have not yet applied to renew their DACA will not be able to apply for renewal.
STUDYING AFTER DACA RESCISSION
High school students will still be allowed to attend public high schools after their DACA expires based on the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Plyler v. Doe. No one can be required to provide proof of legal status for K-12 education.
WORKING AFTER DACA RESCISSION
Anyone currently working with a DACA Employment Authorization Document (EAD) should be allowed to continue working until the document expires. Unexpired DACA EADs are valid for new employment, too. Terminating someone or refusing to hire them because their EAD will exipire in the future is illegal discrimination. Employers or workers with questions about the law should contact the U.S. Department of Justice Immigrant and Employee Rights Section.
