The Embassy of Mexico in the United States recognizes the announcement by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regarding the renewal of the "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" (DACA) program.  More than 400 thousand Mexicans have benefitted from the program and it acknowledges the many contributions they make to the economy and society of the United States.

Mexican consulates in the U.S. will provide assistance to those renewing DACA as well as to those who are applying for the first time. It is important that the beneficiaries of this program request renewal within the allotted time period established by U.S. authorities.

The Embassy calls upon our community to keep themselves informed on this process through official channels of the U. S. Government and the consulates of Mexico in the United States in order to avoid fraud and abuse.  The Centro de Información sobre Actualidad Migratoria is available to offer updated information on this process and related consular activities. The phone number is 1-855-463-6395. Additionally, the content of the free of cost app “MiConsulmex” will be updated, as well as other information available through our consular network.
