Last week, a federal judge in California ordered that the Trump administration must continue accepting DACA applications until the Courts make a final decision about the future of DACA. It is likely that President Trump will appeal this decision quickly, so the window to renew your application may not be open for long. In addition, USCIS is still not accepting applications for DACA holders to obtain a travel document. It is not recommended that you travel outside the United States during this time.
