On June 18, 2020, the Supreme Court released the decision that DACA is NOT canceled! This means that the DACA program is back to the way it was before it was canceled by Pres. Trump.
What does this mean for people who are DACA eligible? It means that EVERYONE who is eligible is encouraged to apply, even if they have never had DACA before. If you have ever had DACA, RENEW. If you currently have DACA, apply for Advance Parole, which will allow you to travel outside of the country and return lawfully. This can open doors to lawful status down the road.
For those who are not DACA eligible, SHARE THIS NEWS. Share with friends, family, teachers, coworkers, neighbors, on social media, anywhere and everywhere you can. We need to get the word out.
This court order does not prevent the President from making another attempt to cancel this program, so no matter your status, ACT FAST! Apply, renew, apply for Advance Parole, share. We will post resources here, as well as on our social media, for help with applications or renewals. We can help with your application, and will also be sharing low-cost trustworthy options.
This is VERY exciting news, but it is not the end. Tell everyone you know to VOTE in November! Register to vote by mail, help your friends register to vote and understand the ballot.
