Important News For DACA Recipients With 3-Year Work Authorizations Issued After February 16, 2015

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (“USCIS”) recently announced that about 2,600 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) recipients with a 3-year Employment Authorization Document (“EAD”) must return their EAD or have their DACA and EAD terminated.

Who is Affected?

DACA Recipients who received an EAD after February 16, 2015 and have been contacted by the USCIS about it must return their invalid EAD by July 31, 2015.

What happens if I don’t return my EAD?

Failure to return your EAD by July 31, 2015t will result in the USCIS terminating your DACA and employment authorizations. It may also negatively impact future requests for deferred action or other requests.

Who is not affected?

DACA Recipients who received a 3-year EAD approved and mailed on or before February 16, 2015 should not be affected by this.
