IMPORTANT DACA UPDATE
August 30, 2022 - New DACA Rule -
Attention all DACA recipients!
If you are eligible to renew your DACA status, please do so as soon as possible.
DACA faces the imminent risk of being ended, threatening the lives of hundreds of
thousands of young people. The Texas federal court or the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals
could lift the stay on the Texas court order - which currently allows renewals - in
the upcoming months. Additionally, if the 5th Circuit agrees with the Texas court
that DACA is unlawful, DACA could again be back before the U.S. Supreme Court. It
is unknown whether the final rule from the Biden Administration will protect DACA
from a negative court ruling, or if this rule will allow initial requests to be processed
and approved. Therefore, it is imperative that eligible DACA recipients continue to renew their
DACA as soon as possible, and that Congress act this year - we urge all parties to
do their part to support these crucial efforts.
