On September 5th, 2017, the Trump Administration announced that it would be ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program on March 5th, 2018. If you are a first-time applicant to DACA, or are looking for information regarding renewal of your application for DACA, please see the following recommendations from the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP):
The DACA program helps undocumented immigrants (who meet certain requirements) gain
temporary immigration protections, including access to a work permit and protection
from deportation. The purpose of DACA is to protect eligible immigrant youth who came
to the United States when they were children from deportation. Enrollment in the program
expires after two years and is subject to renewal.
If students have questions about their eligibility for DACA, they are encouraged to seek legal support from a qualified attorney. Some community organizations, such as the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP), provide consultation and resources for undocumented immigrants interested in learning more about DACA.
