DACA Updates

UW students, faculty, or staff affected by changes to the DACA Program or who have immigration concerns please contact Jamie Crawford with the UW College of Law at 307-766-2397, or the Center for International Human Rights Law and Advocacy


Important Notice: Beginning February 21, 2020, Travel Ban 3.0 will expand to include nationals from Kyrgyzstan, Nigeria, Sudan, and Tanzania. The ban will only apply to nationals of these countries who are outside of the U.S. on the effective date and intend to enter the United States in order to remain here on a permanent basis. Students on F-1 or J-1 nonimmigrant visas will not be affected by the expanded travel ban. 


If you believe that you or your family will be affected by the expanded travel ban, please contact Golten Fellow of International Human Rights Law & Advocacy at or 307-766-2397 for assistance.


On June 28, 2019, the Supreme Court decided to hear several cases challenging the Trump Administration’s rescission of the DACA program. There are no new changes to the DACA program at this time. It is still being implemented on the terms of the prior court rulings (discussed below). The Supreme Court will be issuing a decision following oral arguments, likely sometime in the first half of 2020. Current DACA recipients who want to renew their DACA should submit their applications to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services as soon as possible considering the delays at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and the upcoming Supreme Court decision. 


Due to prior court rulings, the DACA program remains partially in place. This means that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (the federal agency that decides DACA applications) will not consider first-time, initial applications or applications for advance parole (permission to re-enter the United States after travel abroad) based on a grant of DACA. It will, however, continue to accept and process renewal DACA applications.
