Approximately 25% of DREAMers miss final deadline

Approximately 25% of DREAMers miss final deadline

Although the DACA program is scheduled to end this coming March, 150,000 of the nearly 800,000 current recipients were eligible to renew their membership in the program by October 5. Many did apply on time, but approximately 36,000 did not, making them susceptible to deportation.

Critics and many DACA recipients requested an extension of the deadline, given the recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, which prevented a substantial number of DREAMers from submitting their applications. The DHS did say it would consider making case by case exceptions, but many eligible recipients didn’t bother submitting their application at all, indicating that they’ve given hope.

Congress is expected to codify DACA into permanent law before it is scheduled to end, but Trump’s “wish list” complicates the negotiation process and indicates the fragility of citizenship of foreign-born nationals in America today.
