Homeland Security DACA memo

July 28, 2020

CARECEN SF rejects the Trump Administration’s announcement regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) which essentially undermines the program’s benefits; limiting work permits for recipients of the program to one year instead of two. They will also deny any new applications from people who currently qualify for the program, as well as severely restrict advanced parole requests. The recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling (June 18, 2020) makes it clear, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) MUST continue the program, renew work authorization documents, and allow for new applications into the program to proceed.
