On September 5, 2017, the Trump administration announced the rescission of the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program on March 5, 2018. According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the agency will phase out the program over the next 6 months and will stop accepting new DACA applications after September 5th, but will continue to process pending cases and will accept some renewal applications for a limited period.
