USCIS retains NTA policy for DACA requestors

  1. Date Announced

    June 28, 2018

    USCIS will continue to follow the existing DACA information-sharing policy regarding any information provided in a DACA request or DACA-related benefit. Adjudicators must refer to PM 602-0050, Revised Guidance for the Referral of Cases and Issuance of Notices to Appear (NTAs) in Cases Involving Inadmissible and Removable Aliens, to determine whether an RTI (Referral to ICE) or NTA should be issued to DACA requestors or DACA grantees. When processing a non-DACA-related application, petition, or request, adjudicators must refer to PM 602-0050 to determine whether any information submitted by a DACA requestor in connection with a DACA request or DACA-related application may be included in or relied on to generate NTAs or RTIs. [ID #343]
