DACA Updates


USCIS Will Not Accept DACA Requests From Those Never Granted DACA

Young individuals who previously would have been eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) were excited by the preliminary injunction issued on February 13, 2018. Yet, on February 14, 2018, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (also known as USCIS) clarified that the February 13, 2018 preliminary injunction would be the same as the January 9, 2018 preliminary injunction. Thus, USCIS will not accept DACA requests from individuals who have never been granted DACA. Until further notice is given, USCIS will continue to operate on the DACA policy with the terms in place before it was rescinded on September 5, 2017.

Announcement on Hearing for Preliminary Injunctions

As of today, two judges have issued preliminary injunctions, temporarily blocking Trump’s order to end DACA on March 5, 2018. Yet, the Trump administration will be seeking relief from the Supreme Court of the United States. The Supreme Court has the discretion of which cases they choose to hear; thus, they could announce as soon as today (February 16, 2018) whether it will hear the administration’s case against the preliminary injunctions.
