DACA Rescission

Rescission of DACA

President Trump rescinded DACA today with a six month wind down. Here’s what will happen to DACA holders and applicants based on its rescission memorandum:

New DACA Requests

  • USCIS will continue to adjudicate properly filed initial DACA requests, and two year EAD work permits will be given to those that are approved.
  • No more initial requests will be accepted beginning today 9/5/2017.

DACA Renewals

  • USCIS will continue to adjudicate properly filed DACA renewals, and two year EAD work permits will be given to those that are approved.
  • No more renewal requests will be accepted beginning today 9/5/2017.
  • DACA holders will not have their deferred action status nor their work permits terminated, but they will not be able to renew.

Advance Parole travel

  • The government will not approve any new requests for I-131 advance parole (AP) travel. It will refund fees for DACA related pending I-131 applications.
  • The government will “generally honor” previously approved AP.*

 

* USCIS retains authority to revoke or terminate AP at any time. Speak with an attorney before leaving the U.S.
