UPDATE on DACA (as of April 24, 2018):

After the recent D.C. court decision ruling that the decision to end DACA was unlawful, USCIS policy on DACA applications has not changed. If you have never applied for DACA before, you cannot apply now. See below for more information about DACA renewals.

  1. Right now, you can still apply to renew your DACA. USCIS’s current policy is to accept certain DACA renewals. If you qualify for renewal, we recommend you apply.
  2. If you have never applied for DACA before, you cannot apply now. Although the D.C. court has ordered USCIS to accept new applications, it has paused its decision from going into effect for 90 days. Currently, USCIS is not accepting applications from first-time DACA applicants.
  3. What’s next: The judge ruled that the Department of Homeland Security has 90 days to explain why DACA was terminated, and until then the court order is on hold. After the 90 days, we do not know how the administration will respond.
