ALERT: USCIS Resumes Accepting DACA Applications

January 16, 2018

Following last week’s court ruling, USCIS confirmed that it has resumed accepting DACA applications. From the USCIS website:

 Due to a federal court order, USCIS has resumed accepting requests to renew a grant of deferred action under DACA.  Until further notice, and unless otherwise provided in this guidance, the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on Sept. 5, 2017…

If you previously received DACA and your DACA expired on or after Sept. 5, 2016, you may still file your DACA request as a renewal request…

If you previously received DACA and your DACA expired before Sept. 5, 2016, or your DACA was previously terminated at any time, you cannot request DACA as a renewal (because renewal requests typically must be submitted within one year of the expiration date of your last period of deferred action approved under DACA), but may nonetheless file a new initial DACA request.

If you have any questions about whether or how to apply for DACA (initial or renewal), please contact the attorneys at Landau, Hess, Simon, Choi & Doebley.
