BREAKING: On July 16, 2021, a Federal District Court judge in Texas issued a ruling in Texas v. U.S. limiting the DACA program and declaring it unlawful. Effective immediately, the court’s decision prohibits the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) from approving any new DACA applications. While new applications will no longer be approved, renewals will continue to move forward. It is also important to note that individuals who currently have DACA will keep their protections, and pending renewal applications will be processed normally. Contact Lily Dorn at ldorn@ccalac.org with questions.

The National Association of Community Health Centers has joined the California Primary Care Association, the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations, and the Texas Association of Community Health Centers in a statement raising concerns about the ruling. The National Immigration Law Center also released a statement on the ruling here and created an updated action in response to Friday’s ruling requesting Congress take immediate action to provide a pathway for citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants – including thousands of DACAeligible immigrants whose futures hang in the balance due to the uncertainty surrounding this latest ruling. Click here to email your Member of Congress.

The overarching message of the trainings is simply that California immigrants and undocumented individuals are eligible to use public services such as COVID-19 testing, treatment and vaccines, Medi-Cal, CalFresh, WIC, Head Start, Food Banks and more.
