Nearly 6,300 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, recipients in Minnesota are scrambling to figure out what their next steps.
Attorney Jorge Saavedra F. said no matter when your authorization expires, DACA recipients should reach out to a lawyer.
Those who are in the program whose authorization expires between Sept. 5, 2017, and March 5, 2018, are eligible to renew their authorization for two years. But they must get the applications done by Oct. 5, 2017.
"For me, that has been the thing that has created urgency in the last week," Saavedra said.
