On Sunday, September 03, 2017, Politico.com reported that the White House has “unofficially confirmed” that the Trump Administration will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, with a six-month delay.

As of today, it is unclear whether this reported decision to end the DACA program is confirmed. '

Also unclear is the timeline and terms for termination of the program. Another major open question is whether those with DACA will continue to receive DACA protection (including their employment authorization) until the expiration of their current DACA period or whether DACA will be immediately terminated.

We will continue to provide updates regarding the DACA program, as information is available.

What is known, is that approximately 800,000 people in the United States are currently on DACA. These individuals were brought to the United States prior to June of 2007. They are either in school,  have graduated from a U.S. high school or college, or have obtained their GED.

These individuals are professionals, students, and the parents of young U.S. citizen children. These individuals do not have any serious criminal record. These individuals have trusted the U.S. government and provided their information to the Department of Homeland Security.

Ending DACA will eliminate these individuals’ ability to continue to work in the United States with permission, and will subject them to immediate deportation.

Ending DACA is estimated to result in a $280 billion reduction in economic growth in the United States over the next 10 years.

We encourage you to contact your Congressional Representatives and encourage them to #DefendDACA and enact legislation protecting this vital part of nation.
