Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Legal Services

On June 18, 2020, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled that the Trump administration’s attempt to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was unlawful. This is a huge victory for our clients and community! Please read EBCLC’s statement about the DACA decision and our commitment to undocumented community members for more information about our next steps.

The SCOTUS decision restores the DACA program for now. DACA recipients continue to be protected from deportation and eligible for benefits such as work authorization. 

Under the SCOTUS decision, both first-time and renewal DACA applications must be accepted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). However, as of June 30, 2020, we are still waiting for DHS guidance on processing of first-time DACA applications and Advance Parole applications.
