Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)



If so, renew your DACA as soon as possible.

On January 9, 2018, Judge William Alsup of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ordered a halt to the federal government’s termination of DACA.  Specifically, Judge Alsup granted a preliminary injunction – a temporary order while the case goes forward – that requires USCIS to accept DACA renewal applications again.  On January 13, 2018, USCIS announced it would resume DACA renewals as a result of this order.

Because it is a temporary order, we recommend that you file your DACA renewal as soon as possible!
