DACA Breaking News: On September 13, 2023, Judge Hanen, from the Southern District of Texas, issued a ruling in the DACA lawsuit that keeps the program unchanged: those currently with DACA status can continue to renew their DACA, but no initial or new DACA applications can be granted. Judge Hanen determined that despite the new regulations issued by the Biden Administration last year, he believes the DACA program remains unlawful. However, for now, DACA remains in place as it has for the past two years, and we encourage DACA holders, after individual consultations with a trusted immigration attorney, to continue renewing their DACA and pursuing all of the benefits DACA provides, including advance parole.

FAFSA Updates for Mix-Status Families

The California Dream Act Application (CADAA) is now open for more students! First-time FAFSA filers who are eligible for federal financial aid have faced challenges with the new FAFSA application if one or more of their contributors doesn’t have a Social Security Number. The CADAA traditionally provides a pathway for thousands of California students who deserve access to financial aid to help them achieve a higher education. Now, CSAC hopes it will offer an option for students and families who may be struggling to complete the FAFSA before the May 2 state priority deadline. Students can complete CADAA at dream.csac.ca.gov.

¡La Solicitud de la Ley Dream Act de California (CADAA) ya está abierta para más estudiantes! Quienes presentan la FAFSA por primera vez y son elegibles para recibir ayuda financiera federal han enfrentado desafíos con la nueva solicitud FAFSA si uno o más de sus contribuyentes no tienen un número de seguro social. La CADAA tradicionalmente proporciona un camino para miles de estudiantes de California que merecen acceso a ayuda financiera para ayudarlos a lograr una educación superior. Ahora, CSAC espera ofrecer una opción para estudiantes y familias que puedan tener dificultades para completar la FAFSA antes de la fecha límite de prioridad estatal del 2 de mayo. Los estudiantes pueden completar CADAA en dream.csac.ca.gov.

Una “familia de estatus mixto” es una familia cuyos miembros incluyen personas con diferentes estatus migratorios o de ciudadanía. Un ejemplo de familia de estatus mixto es aquella en la que los padres son indocumentados y los hijos son ciudadanos nacidos en Estados Unidos.
