Is Advance Parole Back?


On July 28th, 2020, DHS released a memo ending DACA as we know it.

Over a month after the Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration’s termination of the DACA program was wrong, arbitrary and capricious and weeks after the Federal Court in Maryland ordered USCIS to revert the program to its origins and to resume accepting new applications and advance parole, Trump is dismantling the program instead.

The new memo states USCIS will NOT be accepting new first-time applications for DACA or Advance Parole requests except under “special circumstances” and any pending requests as of July 28th, 2020 will be rejected and returned to applicants.

The memo does not tell us what USCIS would consider “special circumstances.”
