DREAMzone will continue to provide the most current information regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. On Friday, Dec. 4, 2020, the federal district court in Batalla v. Trump ruled that DACA must be restored to its original terms. Under this decision, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services must:

  1. Accept initial applications for DACA for eligible applicants;
  2. Accept applications to travel internationally for educational and other grounds; and
  3. Restore existing work permits to two years, up from one.
