Your home for the most important resources and trusted information on being undocumented in the U.S.
Our guides and Resource Library are continually refreshed with the latest guidance and materials curated from respected organizations like the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) and American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) so you can stay informed.
Scroll through our guides on your own or grab a friend or family member and learn together. Reviewing with another person will help you retain the information so you can apply it in the future if you encounter the police or immigration enforcement.
We’re a collective of nationally recognized immigrant-serving organizations, lawyers, technologists, and allies dedicated to helping the undocumented immigrant community.
Everyone in the U.S. is entitled to certain rights under the Constitution, no matter where you were born or who is president. We’re here to help you learn how to put those rights to use so you can feel as prepared as possible if you encounter immigration enforcement. Since November 2016, Informed Immigrant has connected the undocumented immigrant community with the information and resources they need to become empowered in our current political environment. We’re here for you. Learn more about our story and the organizations involved here.
DACA is back!
On December 4, 2020 a New York Federal court ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to restore DACA to its original form. This means:
- If you have never had DACA and are eligible, you can apply for the first time.
- Advance Parole is back in its original form
- Anyone who received a 1-year renewal of their DACA will automatically have their protections extended to two years
- Renewals continue to be accepted
