Trump Throws DACA Issue into Congress’ Court

As of September 5, 2017, the 2012 memo that allowed the creation of DACA has been withdrawn.  In doing so, President Trump has left the final decision to Congress to decide in 180 days whether to reinstate or eliminate DACA.This means that at the moment, individuals with the qualifications to apply will not be able to do so. However, individuals already benefiting from DACA with valid EADs may continue to work. If your EAD is expiring before March 5, 2018, you will have until October 5,  2017, to apply for a 2-year renewal. If your EAD expires after March 5, 2018, you will not be able to renew your EAD.
