Last week, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services department announced that they will not be accepting applications for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals from individuals who have never been accepted under DACA before. There were federal court orders issued on both January 9, 2018, and February 13, 2018, indicating that individuals that need to renew their DACA status will be able to submit applications to do so. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program will be operating as it was before it was redacted in September of 2017.
Of course, as the government continues to battle over the future of the Deferred Action program, more changes are sure to be made. In fact, a bill was recently introduced calling for a 10-12 year path to citizenship for DACA program participants.
