On September 5, 2017, President Trump directed the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to phase out and eventually end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) over two and half years.

On January 13, 2018, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) announced it would resume accepting and processing DACA renewals immediately in response to a federal court order.

As of this time, USCIS is no longer accepting any initial DACA requests and only accepting DACA renewal applications.
