DACA

We support DACA students and recipients, and their families.

Here is the latest on DACA (updated January 26, 2021)

  • Because of a Dec 4, 2020 federal court ruling:

    • Initial and renewal applications are being accepted

    • Advance Parole is back 

    • Anyone who received a 1-year renewal of their DACA will automatically have their protections extended to two years

  • DACA is being challenged in a Texas court case. A ruling from Judge Andrew Hanen is expected soon.

Our ISRC team can help you complete your DACA renewal application for free. Schedule a consultation with our Immigrant Legal Services Fellow by contacting Daniel at 602-492-4510

For support with initial applications please contact our friends at Aliento

Here are some important points to remember:

  • You do NOT have to stop working until your work permit expires.​
  • Your employer has no right to harass you about DACA and the expiration date on your work permit.
  • You are not legally obligated to tell an employer that DACA was terminated or that your work permit expired.

DACA students attend colleges and universities across the U.S., including the UA. For information on how to apply to the UA as a DACA recipient, please click here.
