June 15, 2023 was the 11th anniversary of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is a program that allows certain undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit. If your DACA status expires, you will lose the protections and benefits that come with it, including:
If you have DACA and your status is expiring, it is important to renew your status as soon as possible. You can renew your status up to 150 days before your current DACA expires.
–> It is also important to note that if you file for renewal more than 1 year after your DACA expiration date, your application will be considered a new application. New DACA applications are not being processed at this time.
If you are facing the expiration of your DACA status, it is important to speak with an experienced DACA immigration attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options. An attorney can help you determine whether you can renew your status and assist you with the renewal process.
