Undocumented/DACA Students

January 10, 2018 DACA UPDATE

A U.S. Federal judge has very recently opened up the process for DACA recipients (for what is possibly a limited time period.) The order temporarily stops the termination of the DACA program and directs USCIS to resume accepting certain DACA applications.

DACA recipients are urged to quickly re-apply if they are eligible. Click on the button below entitled “DACA Renewal Legal Info” for info on who can re-apply, etc. Individuals are urged to consult with a licensed immigration attorney.
