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.
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.
