We attended an event hosted by the New York City Bar Association, Beyond the Headlines: Examining the Undoing of DACA and TPS and the Legal Response in New York on October 23, 2017. We wanted to share some of our takeaways to help immigrants and their families navigate the legal system in this time of change and uncertainty.
The Trump administration recently announced the discontinuance of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and has indicated plans to phase out Temporary Protected Status (TPS) which nationwide combine to provide 1.1 million immigrants the opportunity to work and live in this country without fear of deportation.
These programs grant legal protections to immigrants escaping natural disasters, escaping war-ravaged conditions, or those brought to the United States as children. The Bar Association held a forum to discuss the community and government response in New York, including affirmative litigation challenging the end of DACA, the potential impact on access to government benefits and a historical perspective on what these changes mean for U.S. immigration law and policy.

The panelists also mentioned that in this new administration, the immigration system is getting tougher to navigate. Thus, it is even more important than ever to seek the help of an experienced immigration attorney.
