Information about DACA for University of Nebraska Faculty, Staff and Students
DACA offers certain legal protections to eligible immigrant youth who were brought to the United States when they were children. DACA gives young undocumented immigrants: 1) protection from deportation and 2) a work permit. DACA recipients could request consideration every two years, subject to renewal.
In light of the Trump Administration's announcement ending the administratively-issued DACA as of March 5, 2018, here’s what you need to know:
- Initial DACA Applicants. No new initial applications are being accepted at this time.
- Renewal DACA Applicants. USCIS will adjudicate DACA renewal requests received by Oct. 5, 2017, from current beneficiaries whose benefits will expire between Sept. 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018.
- Read the 2017 DACA announcement from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
