Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

President Obama’s Administration announced on June 15, 2012 that younger immigrants may apply, starting August 15, 2012, for “Deferred Action” and work authorization for two years with the possibility to renew that authorization at the end of the two years. Deferred Action is temporary relief from deportation or removal action. This policy is not the DREAM Act, however it is intended to reach the same demographic that the DREAM Act might cover.  This policy is not a permanent fix and does not grant permanent legal status to anyone.

You may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals if you:

  1. Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;
  2. Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;
  3. Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;
  4. Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making your request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS;
  5. Entered without inspection before June 15, 2012, or your lawful immigration status expired as of June 15, 2012;
  6. Are currently in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and
  7. Have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.
