On September 5, 2017, the Trump Administration announced the cancellation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA was created by President Obama to defer the deportation of people who entered the country illegally as children with their parents. Under DACA, recipients were granted two-year renewable work permits. Nearly 800,000 people are DACA recipients, and some of these individuals are now susceptible to deportation as early as March 5, 2018. In its announcement, Immigration Services stated that it has initiated the “orderly phase out of the program,” and it will provide “a limited, six-month window during which it will consider certain requests for DACA and applications for work authorization.” Immigration Services has also stated that DACA recipients will be allowed to retain both DACA and their work authorizations until they expire. September 5, 2017 was the deadline to submit initial requests for DACA.
In this video, U.S.A. Immigration Attorney, La Toya McBean, addresses some of the major issues about DACA’s cancellation and what it means for the nearly 800,000 people who are receiving this benefit.
