It’s not clear if President-elect Donald Trump will change his view on DACA and many are worried. As of the end of June 2016 there were 750,000 DACA applicants approved and 525,000 DACA renewals. Can Trump undo all this?
Since DACA was created through Executive Order, there is no statutory or regulatory way to fully protect DACA.
Initial DACA applications take more than 9 months to adjudicate. Renewals are processed faster. Therefore, new applications will not be completed before the Inauguration. Should you apply for the first time now? No definite answer can be given.
