NYC DACA UPDATE
UPDATES ON DACA ? TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ACTIONS AND THE CITY RESPONSE TO PROTECT DREAMERS
On September 5, Trump Administration officials announced that they are rescinding the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) memorandum and commencing a wind-down of the program.
The City stands with DACA recipients, commonly-known as Dreamers, including all 30,000 Dreamers here in New York City and all 800,000 around this country. With cities across the nation, New York City is fighting for Dreamers, advocating for Congress to pass the DREAM Act and participating in legal action against the Trump Administration to defend Dreamers in court. The City is also prioritizing immigrant legal services for Dreamers and sharing information and resources in neighborhood hubs.
What is DACA?
DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is a federal immigration program begun in 2012 that helps undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. The average age of Dreamers when they came to the U.S. was six years old and many of them have no real knowledge of or connection to the country of their birth. DACA provides eligible undocumented immigrants with temporary protection from deportation and access to work authorization. DACA recipients, or Dreamers, can work lawfully, receive a Social Security card, and connect to other important benefits and services, including Medicaid in New York State, which can help them provide for themselves and their families.
- If you are a DACA recipient or know a Dreamer in need of support, City resources will continue to be available regardless of your immigration status, as they are for all immigrants, including access to schools, public health facilities, public hospitals, public safety, emergency food and shelter, mental health services, IDNYC and anti-discrimination protections.
- If you have any questions about your legal status or any applicable deadlines you must meet, the City provides free, confidential immigrant legal services.
