On November 15, 2017, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issued a reminder that it had stopped accepting new applications for the Central American Minors (CAM) refugee program on November 9, 2017 [PDF version]. The USCIS stated that it will stop interviewing CAM pending refugee cases on January 31, 2018. Individuals who still have pending CAM refugee applications and who have not been interviewed as of January 31, 2018 will receive a notice with further instructions. The CAM refugee program was terminated as part of the U.S. government's review of the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program (USRAP) for Fiscal Year-2018.
