The President has announced that he will phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. ICIRR, its members and allies are committed to fight to protect those at risk of deportation, and to fight to ensure protection for all.

Here are the details that are currently available:

  • New initial DACA applications will not be accepted (or received) AFTER September 5th. You must have applied and your application must have been received by September 5th to be considered for DACA as a new applicant. Any new initial applications not received by September 5th will not be considered. Text “DACA” to 630-524-4106 for a list of low cost legal service providers.
  • If your DACA work permit expires before March 5, 2018, and you want to renew, DHS must receive your renewal application before October 5th, 2017. Applications will not be accepted after October 5th.
  • If your DACA work permit expires after March 5, 2018, you will not be able to apply to renew. Please consult an attorney to review your options.
  • If you are outside the country with advance parole, make sure to return right away and while your advance parole and EAD are valid. DHS has stated that it will generally honor previously granted advance paroles, but that it retains the authority to revoke or terminate an approved advance parole. The safest route is to return as soon as possible.
  • If you have been granted advance parole under DACA but have not yet left the United States, speak with an attorney to determine potential risks before doing anything.
  • As of September 5th, DHS is NOT granting any new applications for advance parole even if your DACA is still valid.
