Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

DACA

On September 5, 2017 the Trump administration announced the rescission of the DACA program that allowed immigrants who were born outside of the United States and entered the country as a child without proper authorization to avoid deportation if they met certain requirements.

The Rescission Of DACA

The rescission, which has endangered the lives of nearly 800,000 Dreamers has been widely criticized and several DACA recipients, states and organization have filed suits challenging the decision and seeking to enjoin the rescission of DACA and the use of information obtained pursuant to DACA for immigration enforcement purposes.

Are You Eligible For Other Types Of Immigration Benefits?

The Trump administration has urged Congress to act on replacing the DACA program and people across the U.S. are putting pressure on Congress to pass a clean DREAM ACT. We encourage DACA recipient to stay up to date with the latest changes and to schedule consultation with us so that we can evaluate your eligibility for other more lasting forms of relief.

Know Your Rights

As these rapid changes in the law bring uncertainty we also suggest that you be familiar with your rights to prepare for possible encounters with ICE.

Our office stays abreast of all the changes and will update this page upon Congress deciding on the new law.
