Allan Hancock DACA Statement
WASHINGTON—A federal judge in New York invalidated Trump administration rules narrowing the program that protects immigrants living in the U.S. since childhood without legal permission, ruling the restrictions were improperly issued.
This restores the program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, to near-full operation. That means, for the first time since September 2017, new applicants who were not previously eligible, typically because they were too young, may now apply.
Yesterday, July 28, 2020, despite the Supreme Court ruling that USCIS must reinstate the DACA program to its entirety, USCIS issued a memo with the following key information for current DACA recipients and those interested in applying for DACA for the first time:
- Future renewals will only be issued for 1 year instead of 2 years.
- Pending new DACA applications that were pending will be denied.
- Advanced Parole applications will be denied unless DACA recipients can prove “exceptional circumstances” for the request.
The fight for our DACA community and DREAMERS is not over. We will continue to update you on changes as they develop.The following highlight ideas for students that colleges can continue to explore regardless of the DACA decision.
