About DACA and Employment

On September 5, 2017, the Trump administration announced an end to the DACA program by rescinding the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created under President Obama. This means that if you already have DACA, your DACA and related work permit will continue to be valid until the day they expire. No new DACA applications will be received or processed by DHS after September 5, 2017. . DHS will continue to process all renewal requests that were pending as of September 5, 2017.

If your work permit was lost or stolen, you’ll need to replace it as soon as possible.
