McGeorge’s Statement of Support and Recommendation to DACA recipients

The U.S. Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case of DHS v. Regents of the University of California on November 12, 2019.  This case will determine whether the Trump Administration can end DACA. While there is no exact date for the Supreme Court decision, legal experts expect the decision to come in the spring of 2020, and no later than the end of June.

We remain encouraged by the strength of the undocumented youth movement, the victories in three lower courts and hope that the Supreme Court will also decide to protect the DACA program. 

Our Recommendation

If you are a DACA recipient, we highly encourage you to speak to an immigration attorney about renewing your DACA as soon as possible if it expires anytime between now and 2020.

You may be able to renew your DACA if you had it in the past and it expired.

You should talk with a trusted legal service provider before you renew if you had contact with law enforcement since your last renewal or if your DACA was terminated.

Unfortunately, those who have never had DACA still cannot apply to the program.
