Supreme Court ruling on DACA does not impact current DACA recipients

On June 23, 2016, the U.S Supreme Court issued a 4-4 split decision upholding the injunction against implementation of President Obama's actions to provide safe haven and work authorization to thousands under the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Legal Permanent Residents ("DAPA") program and to extend eligibility for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals ("DACA") to additional thousands who are currently without any form of legal status. It is important to note that although the President's expanded DACA program will not be expanded at this time, the Supreme Court's decision does not affect anyone who is currently enrolled in DACA. Individuals who meet the 2012 DACA guidelines may continue to come forward and file an initial or renewal request for DACA under those guidelines. For more information, visit the USCIS DACA website.
