The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal of the Trump Administration’s decision to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Currently, as a result of court orders, USCIS continues to accept and process renewal applications for DACA. New applications for those who have never previously been granted DACA are no longer accepted.
A decision by the Supreme Court is likely to come in June of 2020 or before. Those who have a current grant of DACA which expires at any time in 2019 or 2020 should consider renewing immediately in order to get a new grant with a validity date extending as far into the future as possible. People who have DACA with a validity date extending into 2021 or beyond may retain work authorization and protections against removal beyond the Supreme Court decision potentially ending the DACA program.
