Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) announcement

What is DACA?

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a program created in 2012 that makes use of discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. If you met certain guidelines under the program, you could request deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal.

DACA to end in six months

On September 5, 2017, the Attorney General announced the suspension of the DACA program. The enforcement will be delayed for six months, unless Congress enacts legislation (such as the DREAM Act) making DACA law. As more information is known how this rescission of DACA will be implemented, the Office of International Education will provide additional information. In the meantime, the Department of Homeland Security has posted an FAQ page to its website.

We continue to advise any DACA reipient to not travel outside the United States at this time. If you are a DACA recipient currently outside the country, we advise that you return to the U.S. as soon as possible.
