1. The Supreme Court decided to take up the DACA case next term.

The Supreme Court will hear the case on November 12, 2019 and decide on the future of DACA in January-June 2020. A final decision on DACA from the Supreme Court could come at the latest by June 2020. Stay tuned for the next steps on how to take action ahead of the Supreme Court hearings.

2. If your DACA expires in 2020, we recommend you speak with a legal service provider about renewing your DACA now.

Visit for steps on how to apply for your renewal and for financial support.

3. New applications are still NOT being accepted at this moment, and advance parole is NOT available.

No one knows for sure whether either will be accepted in the future.

5. Our fight continues!

In 2018, our communities mobilized to elect a new Congress that rejects Trump’s mass deportation agenda. In the House, those members voted to pass the Dream and Promise Act. However, we know that Republicans will not pass permanent protections without using immigrant youth as bargaining chips for more enforcement that would hurt our families and communities. We must continue to demand that ICE and CBP are defunded, while we work to elect new champions in the House, Senate and the White House in 2020. We are #HereToStay
