QUESTIONS ANSWERED ABOUT NEW DACA POLICY AFTER JANUARY 2018
On January 9, 2018, a judge blocked Donald Trump from ending DACA. In his ruling, Alsup wrote that previous recipients of Daca protections who failed to register by the deadline must be allowed to renew their status in the program. However, he said the federal government did not have to process new applications from people who had never before received protection under the program.
On January 13, 2018, USCIS updated its website to include guidance on submitting DACA
renewal applications in light of the January 9, 2018 district court decision. To read on how this guidance may affect you please visit: http://www.aila.org/infonet/aila-practice-alert-filing-daca-renewal.
