There are some reports that President Trump may end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program soon.
At this time, we do not know when or if the DACA program will be terminated or what the end of the program may look like. For example, will those with DACA continue to be protected from deportation and able to use their work permits until they expire? Or will DACA approvals and work permits be revoked?
While the DACA program remains in effect at this time, this community advisory contains some things to keep in mind should the program end.
Read more in the August 28th Community Advisory article “What Do I Need to Know if the DACA Program Ends?.
This resource and many more helpful resources are available at https://www.ilrc.org (Immigrant Legal Resource Center).
If you need help with DACA applications or any immigration issues please contact our office.

“U.S. immigration authorities arrested hundreds of undocumented immigrants in at least a half-dozen states this week in a series of raids that marked the first large-scale enforcement of President Trump’s Jan. 25 order to crack down on the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally.” The Trump Administration has “pledged to deport as many as 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records,” and this is thought to be only the beginning of ICE targeting not only immigrants with criminal records, but also those with minor convictions or no record at all.
