Congress Misses the March 5 Deadline for DACA

After much deliberation, Congress was unable to meet the March 5 deadline to come up with a permanent status for DACA recipients. While DACA recipients are still able to renew their work authorization due to court decisions, the missed deadline is seen as a failure by many. More developments may occur as the March 23 government funding deadline approaches, but this is unlikely. As negotiations continue, DACA recipients will continue to renew their permits but are anxious for a concrete resolution to their ability to stay in the US.
