The Trump Administration has put out a new memo today, July 28, 2020, dismantling the DACA program. This comes after Trump ignored the Supreme Court’s decision by delaying the acceptance of new DACA applications.Here’s a quick FAQ on what the memo means:

1) I thought we won at the Supreme Court! What happened? Can they do this?

We always knew our victory at the Supreme Court was temporary and that Trump would attack the program again. This memo will be challenged in the courts and we will keep fighting, but for now, it stands.

2) So what does this mean for current DACA recipients?

Current DACA recipients who have no renewals pending remain with the same status and their protections will expire as indicated on their work permits.

  • If you are planning to apply to renew your DACA you definitely still can, the new memo states that your renewal will only be extended for one year, not two.

3) What does it mean for pending applications?

  • Currently pending renewals will only be granted for 1 year instead of the previous two year period.
  • Pending new DACA applications will be rejected
  • Advance Parole requests will be rejected unless applicants can prove “exceptional circumstances”.

4) This is a direct attack on undocumented youth.

Make no mistake, this is a direct attack on undocumented youth and the first step to dismantling DACA altogether. Trump is putting the lives of immigrant youth and their families in danger of deportation and as long as he is in the White House he will not stop attacking DACA.
