Court orders DACA to continue for now

On January 9, 2018, a federal district court judge ruled that the U.S. government has to provisionally continue the DACA program. This impacts only current DACA recipients. If you are not a current DACA recipient, you are ineligible to apply for relief.

The ruling is not permanent. This is an ongoing court case and the ruling only provides temporary relief while the legal process continues.

If you are currently a DACA recipient

You will be eligible to apply for a renewal of your DACA permit and Employment Authorization Document (EAD).

DHS is not required to process Advance Parole applications as part of this ruling. That means we still strongly urge you to not attempt travel outside the United States.

If you are not currently a DACA recipient

You are not eligible to apply for DACA under the court ruling.
