USCIS prevented from accepting EXPANDED DACA on 2/18 as previously planned

A federal court issued a preliminary injunction preventing USCIS from accepting requests for the expansion of DACA on February 18, as originally planned. The Department of Justice will appeal the temporary injunction. Until further notice, USCIS will also suspend the plan to accept requests for DAPA. THE COURT’S ORDER DOES NOT AFFECT EXISTING DACA. Individuals may continue to come forward and request initial grant of DACA or renewal of DACA pursuant to the guidelines established in 2012.
