Today, May 20th 2015, should have been the day that the USCIS started accepting applications for the new DACA and DAPA programs. Unfortunately, the executive action enacted by President Obama has been halted by a federal lawsuit filed by the state of Texas and other Republican states.
As of now, there is no word on when exactly the USCIS will start accepting applications. The good news is that there is still a lot of hope.
One thing for sure, as soon as the halt is lifted, the USCIS will release a statement as to when the applications for the new DACA and DAPA will be available to submit.
If you want to know more about the new DACA and DAPA read our DAPA blog.
