지난 9월 4일 트럼프 대통령은 6개월의 유예기간을 두고 DACA의 폐지를 발표했습니다.  주어진 6개월이내에 의회에서 입법활동을 통해 영구 구제책을 마련하지 못할 경우 자신의 권한으로 DACA를 폐지하겠다는 뜻으로 해석됩니다.
다음은 DACA 폐지에 맞춰 향후 DACA의 처리에 대한 이민국 입장을 전제합니다.  참고하세요.

On Sept. 5, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) initiated the orderly phase out of the program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). DHS will provide a limited, six-month window during which it will consider certain requests for DACA and applications for work authorization, under specific parameters. Read the memorandum from Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke for details.

Next Steps for Phasing Out DACA

All DACA benefits are provided on a two-year basis, so individuals who currently have DACA will be allowed to retain both DACA and their work authorizations (EADs) until they expire.
USCIS will adjudicate, on an individual, case by case basis:
Properly filed pending DACA initial requests and associated applications for employment authorization documents (EADs) that have been accepted as of Sept. 5, 2017.
Properly filed pending DACA renewal requests and associated applications for EADs from current beneficiaries that have been accepted as of the date of this memorandum, and from current beneficiaries whose benefits will expire between Sept. 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 that have been accepted as of Oct. 5, 2017.
Individuals who have not submitted an application by Sept. 5, for an initial request under DACA may no longer apply. USCIS will reject all applications for initial requests received after Sept. 5.

중요한 포인트는 현재 DACA를 가지고 있는 사람들중에서 올 해 9월 5일부터 내년 3월 5일 사이에 유효기간이 끝나는 사람은 반드시 10월 5일까지 DACA 연장을 접수해야 합니다.
