On September 5, 2017, we published a comprehensive article explaining the rescission of the memorandum authorizing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and what the rescission of DACA will mean for current DACA beneficiaries. Interested readers should consult our full article for detailed information [see article].
On September 13, 2017, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a simple chart explaining what the rescission of DACA means for those who have DACA and those who were considering applying or in the process of applying on September 5, 2017. We have posted the chart below for your convenience.

As of September 18, 2017, it remains unclear whether Congress will pass legislation offering benefits to those who were previously eligible for DACA or what President Donald Trump would do in the event that Congress does not agree to such legislation prior to March 5, 2017. In the meantime, it is crucial for DACA beneficiaries to consult with an experienced immigration attorney for case-specific guidance. This is especially important for DACA beneficiaries who are eligible to apply for renewal of DACA before October 5, 2017. We will continue to update the website as more information on the aftermath of the rescission of DACA becomes available.
