Since the Trump administration ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on September 5, 2017, several lawsuits have been filed against the administration for terminating the program unlawfully. As a result, two nationwide injunctions in California and New York have allowed people who have previously had DACA to renew their status. However, there are still active legal threats to the program, and court dates and rulings in the next few months will determine the program’s future.
In the midst of important and approaching dates in current DACA litigation, we have received inquiries about possible timelines and future scenarios. Our partners at the National Immigration Law Center have created this document to help answer questions. While there is no way to tell what exactly will happen in the courts or whether a future court ruling could affect the current DACA renewal application process, in this document we highlight key dates for DACA recipients and other stakeholders to keep in mind.
