Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

On September 5, 2017, President Trump announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has been cancelled and will gradually come to a close as of March 5, 2018.

The program is no longer open for new applications or renewal applications. No new applications for DACA will be accepted that are dated after September 5, 2017 and no renewal applications will be accepted for DACA after October 5, 2017.

DACA Participants:

If you are already enrolled in the DACA program, you should speak to ActionNYC about your potential options as soon as possible.

Do not trust any business or individual that promises a Green Card or U.S. Citizenship. 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.

You can make an appointment by calling the ActionNYC Hotline at: (800) 354-0365
