USCIS Recalling 3-Year DACA Work Permits issued or mailed after February 16, 2015

The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has issued a recall on 3-year DACA work permits issued after February 16, 2015. Due to the injunction set by a federal judge in Texas, permits that were issued or mailed by USCIS after February 16 were erroneously mailed to DACA applicants and must be returned. USCIS will reissue 2-year work permits once the 3-year permits are received.

DACA recipients should be advised the three-year work permit recall only applies to SOME individuals who received a card after the February 16, 2015, court order.

If you received a letter or were contacted directly by USCIS regarding the recall of certain three-year work permits, you must IMMEDIATELY return your three-year work permit, also called an Employment Authorization Document, to your local USCIS office.

If you fail to return your card, USCIS will terminate your DACA and all employment authorizations effective July 31, 2015. Please carefully read the information USCIS sent to you or visit for details.

If you have not been contacted by USCIS and you received a three-year card after February 16, 2015, please do not hesitate to contact our office to speak with an experienced immigration attorney.
