An interactive map, courtesy of USC Dornsife's Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration, illustrates estimated numbers of populations who are DACA eligible, and numbers of actual DACA recipients by congressional districts. In the aftermath of the abolishment of DACA, the Department of Homeland Security has set a deadline for all individuals eligible to renew DACA by Oct. 5. 

According to CSII:

Congress has been compelled to work toward a longer-term solution to protect DACAmented Americans, with many calling for a more comprehensive solution to provide legal status to all of the 11 million undocumented in the U.S. We hope that this map is useful for service providers seeking to assist those who are eligible to renew their DACA status, and for informing the civic debate by providing estimates of the number of people directly impacted by the discontinuation of DACA and the policies currently being considered by Congress.
