Trump’s decision regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programs is expected to arrive Friday, though it’s reported that the White House is now exploring whether the attorneys general asking for the decision by September 5 might extend their deadline.  

DACA allowed children brought to the U.S. illegally the opportunity to study and work without the risk of deportation. Now, almost 800,000 DACA recipients are in limbo, waiting for Trump’s decision, which may restrict new applicants or may nix DACA altogether.  

Today, we want to hear from DACA recipients. What have you been dealing with as you await the Trump administration’s decision? How will your life be affected? And do you have logistical legal questions about what this decision means for your future?

Call us at 866-893-5722.


Jessica Hanson, attorney with the National Immigration Law Center, an immigrant rights organization
