A new U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) report shows that between April 1 and June 31, 102,568 DACA applications were approved. This is a slight decrease from the second quarter when 124,799 applications were approved.
During this time period, 5,860 of the approvals were for new DACA recipients completing their initial application, while the other 96,708 were DACA renewals. The report also shows that a total of 793,026 illegal aliens have received work permits and protection from deportation under DACA since the program was created in 2012.
Earlier this month, Pres. Trump rescinded Pres. Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty immediately stopping the acceptance of any new DACA applications, DACA renewals will be accepted until Oct. 5 for those whose work permit expires before March 5, 2018.
