A federal court in Texas has issued a preliminary injunction preventing USCIS from accepting requests for the expansion of DACA. Therefore, the program is on hold for now. We believe that this is just a temporary setback and we are optimistic that the program will go into effect in the near future. Therefore we encourage everyone who qualifies to continue to prepare and gather the documents they need and the fees for the application. This ruling does not affect the DACA program that is currently in effect from 2012 and those who are eligible should continue to apply and/or renew their status. Please check back for updates.
