Judge Blocks New DACA Applications

July 23, 2021

On July 16, 2021, a Texas judge made a decision to block new applicants to the DACA program. DACA is a government program that started in 2012 to protect some people who came to the United States as children and have been in the U.S. since at least 2007.

Unfortunately, the judge’s decision stops the government from processing new DACA applications. However, if you currently have DACA, you are still protected, and you can still apply for renewal.

Many people and groups are fighting back against this decision and we will post again on our website if there are changes.
