What you should know about DACA

Thank you to CLINIC for the following information: 

If you or a family member currently holds Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, known as DACA, here’s what you should know:

  • During his campaign, Trump said he would end DACA. Right now, we are not sure if and when that would happen. We do know that DACA is in place at least until Jan. 19.
  • You should immediately seek guidance from a qualified legal services provider if:

› You are considering an initial DACA application

› You want to renew DACA

› You are planning travel outside of the U.S. with an Advance Parole approval.
