Renew Your DACA!

As many know on Sept. 5 the Trump Administration announced the end of DACA, a program that permits young undocumented immigrants from deportation such as granting them work permits and a Social Security Number. Due to the halt on DACA no new initial applications are being accepted at this time. Most DREAMers with DACA have to renew their status every two years. Now with the Trump Administration ending DACA it is important that those eligible for renewal act now before the deadline on Oct 5, 2017. Any current DACA recipient whose legal status is set to expire on March 5, 2018 can still apply for renewal before the deadline. It is urgent that DACA recipients who have legal statues ending soon apply for renewal before it is too late. Below are a few websites to help DACA recipients.

Steps needed to take for renewal:  Complete and sign

  1. Form I-821D, Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

   Use the most recent version of Form I-821D USCIS website or USCIS will reject your form.

 2. Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization

 3. Form I-765W Worksheet (PDF, 235 KB)

Follow the instructions on all three forms to submit them to USCIS. Make sure you submit the correct fees.
