Undocumented, DACA, & Immigration

Information on DACA-

On September 5th, 2017 the Trump administration announced plans to rescind the DACA federal program. Congress was given six months to come up with a new plan. Folks whose DACA is going to expire on or before March 5th, 2018 can reapply but must file by October 5th, 2017. 

DACA application renewal fees cost approximately $500. If you need assistance with application fees, a number of organizations provide scholarships. Check out My Undocumented Life and DACA Scholars for scholarship information as well as updates.
