There is no doubt that we’re in a difficult moment. Below is our best thinking on how to move forward if you have DACA.

1. DACA still stands.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a program under President Obama’s administration and it will remain until the end of his administration, January 20, 2017. #RealTalk, Trump has said he will end all of Obama’s executive actions, including DACA, and we won’t know for sure what he will do until he comes into office. For now, DACA still stands.

2. First time applying for DACA? Hold off.

If you are applying for DACA for the first time, we recommend that you hold off. The reality is that we have 70 days until the end of the Obama administration, that is not enough time to process new applications.

3. Applying for a DACA renewal? Move forward.

If you have an approved advanced parole take advantage of it! BUT you MUST return before January 20th, 2017. We recommend that YOU contact advocacy@unitedwedream.org if you have any problems coming back in. If you’re planning on applying for advance parole, we recommend that you hold off!

5. You are not alone. We’ve got your back.
