On September 5, 2017, President Trump announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would end. DACA is sometimes referred to as the "Dream Act."
This decision was challenged in court and on January 9, 2018, a Federal court said that the Federal government would have to accept DACA renewal applications.
If you have ever had DACA, you may be eligible to renew or file a new initial application. Currently, people who never had DACA cannot file for DACA for the first time, but this may change.
