USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) has resumed accepting DACA renewal applications per the order of a California federal judge. This comes four months after the DACA program was rescinded in September 2017 by the Trump Administration.
DACA, or “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” is a program that began under the Obama Administration to allow young, undocumented individuals to legally work in the U.S. New DACA applications will not be accepted at this time, but recipients whose DACA status expired on or after September 5, 2017 can apply for renewal. More information can be found at the USCIS website.
Attorney Paul Schultz has extensive experience representing qualified individuals in applying for the DACA program. If your DACA has expired or is set to expire soon, it is crucial to act promptly since the court decision is under appeal and may potentially be reversed. Mr. Schultz can be reached at (215) 567-1530 or by emailing [email protected].
