Answer: 
It could take several weeks or even months for the courts to decide the Texas case against DAPA and DACA+ In the meantime, if you qualify for either process you should continue to prepare by collecting the necessary evidence to show you qualify. Also, most people who will qualify for DACA+ or DAPA are not enforcement priorities. That means that they should not be arrested or deported while DACA+ and DAPA are delayed by the court. If you are arrested by immigration officials it's important that you contact a licensed attorney immediately. NOTE: 2012 DACA was limited to those who were under 31 years of age on June 15, 2012, who entered the U.S. before June 15, 2007, and who were under 16 years old when they entered. DACA+ covers all undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. on or before January 1, 2014 while under the age of 16. DACA + also expanded work authorization to three years rather than two. DAPA applies to undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. on or before January 1, 2010 and have lived in the U.S. since then; and who, on November 20, 2014, were the parent of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.
