On September 5, 2017, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the revocation of the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). As a result of this revocation, October 5, 2017, is the last day that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service will accept applications for DACA status and related work authorization applications. Renewal requests that are granted will be valid for two years, unless otherwise terminated or revoked. In addition, the DACA status and related work authorization documents of individuals with current valid status beyond October 5, 2017, will remain valid until the status expires, unless otherwise terminated or revoked.
