Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

There have been several recent announcements about  Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).  On January 13, 2018, the federal government announced that it would start accepting DACA renewal applications. Renewals are available for those who presently have DACA, or who used to have DACA.

DACA recipients should make an appointment with a legal services provider to talk through their options.  You should speak to ActionNYC as soon as possible.

Renewals are NOT available for those who NEVER had DACA or whose DACA was terminated.

Do not trust any business or individual that promises a Green Card or U.S. Citizenship. Only lawyers or those who have gotten permission from United States Department of Justice can give legal advice or tell you whether you can apply for a renewal.  If you have questions about your individual situation, you should see a trusted immigration attorney. The City provides free, safe immigration legal services through ActionNYC and you can make an appointment.
