On September 5, 2017, the U.S. Attorney General and President announced that DACA is being rescinded. As a result, here’s what you need to know. For more details in English and Spanish check out this flyer. Remember:

  • You do NOT have to stop working until your work permit expires
  • Your employer has no right to harass you about DACA and you are not legally obligated to tell them the program has been terminated.

What is DACA?

On June 15, 2012, President Obama announced the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. DACA is an immigration policy that allows undocumented immigrants that came before their 16th birthday and before June 2007 to apply for a renewable 2-year work permit.
