The Glazer Family Dreamers Resource Center (DRC) is here for you
Between the COVID-19 pandemic, unrest over racial inequality and the uncertain fate of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), these are certainly stressful times for our community.
Please know that the DRC team is here virtually to help in any way that we can. Use the resources on this page for support. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out at [email protected].
On Friday, July 16, a federal court in Texas ruled that the DACA program is unlawful. What does this decision mean for DACA recipients and DACA-eligible individuals?
- Current DACA cases remain valid. People who currently have DACA keep their DACA protection and work permit.
- DACA renewals continue. People who have DACA now or had DACA in the past are still eligible to renew their case. Pending renewal applications will be processed. Talk to a legal service provider about renewing.
- First time DACA applications on hold. No new DACA applications will be approved at this time. The decision allows USCIS to receive initial applications but blocks the approval of any new DACA case. Anyone with a pending, first-time DACA application will not be granted at this time.
Additional details and guidance will be provided as the judge’s decision is analyzed more carefully and there is an official response from USCIS to the decision.
