ADVISORY (Nov. 11, 2016) - Before consulting the resources on this page, please first review the resource page we have assembled on how to proceed given the possible cancellation of the DACA program and other policy proposals.
On June 23, 2016, the Supreme Court announced that they had deadlocked in United States v. Texas, leaving in place, at least for now, the lower court decision halting the implementation of Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) and expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), preventing an estimated five million undocumented immigrants from gaining protection from deportation and work authorization. The decision does not affect the original DACA program.
