DACA Update from Homeland Security


The Department of Homeland Security issued a bulletin today, indicating that undocumented immigrants who have applied for the DACA deportation deferral program will not be deported even if their status lapsed during President Trump’s decision to phase out the program.  Those with DACA status who engage in “criminal conduct”, however, will still be targeted for deportation, even certain misdemeanor alcohol, drug, domestic violence and other crimes.
