The Supreme Court DACA Decision – Exciting News for First Time DACA Applicants

Posted on June 19th, 2020

The Supreme Court of the United States issued a decision related to the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program on June 18th. The Court decided that because the Administration did not follow specific administrative rules in how it attempted to terminate the program, that the termination was unconstitutional. This decision re-opens the door to DACA applicants who have not filed for the benefit before. In fact, USCIS is expected to begin accepting applications once again from individuals who are requesting DACA for the first time. We strongly suggest that if you meet the eligibility requirements, contact any one of our five (5) offices to discuss the process to begin assembling the evidence required to support a DACA filing so as to be prepared when USCIS begins to accept applications once again.
