DACA Updates & Resources
On December 4, 2020 the Eastern District of New York Judge ordered restoration of DACA, opening the immigration program to new applicants for first time since 2017. This court order allows for new first-time DACA applicants, a 2 year permit instead of 1 year, and allows for advanced parole without restrictions for DACA recipients. As of today, DHS must abide by these new changes, however, there will be a court hearing on December 22nd to discuss the overall legality of DACA. As we await for more in depth news, we have prepared a few resources for individuals affected by the decision.
