About DACA and Employment

On September 5, 2017, the Trump administration announced an end to the DACA program by rescinding the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created under President Obama. This means that if you already have DACA, your DACA and related work permit will continue to be valid until the day they expire. No new DACA applications will be received or processed by DHS after September 5, 2017. If you have a permit that will expire between now and March 5, 2018, you may apply for a two-year renewal of your DACA which must be received by DHS by October 5, 2017. DHS will continue to process all renewal requests that were pending as of September 5, 2017.
