Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

What It Does:

  • This new action stops the removal of certain qualified young people and grants them the opportunity to stay in the United States without fear of removal.
  • Grants employment authorization if the individual can demonstrate an economic necessity for employment.

What It Doesn't Do:

  • Since it is only a form of prosecutorial discretion (the government deciding not to prosecute in this case), it does not grant "legal status."
  • It is not a visa status
  • It is not a permanent fix and does not grant permanent legal status to anyone
  • It does not lead to a path to citizenship

Who Is Eligible?

    USCIS will not currently accept any new applicants, only renewals.

    Renewals can be done for anyone who previously had DACA and their DACA expired on or after September 5, 2016. If someones DACA expired before September 5, 2016 they may be eligible to file a new initial DACA request.

    Renewals are only eligible for individuals who:

  • Did not depart the United States on or after Aug. 15, 2012, without advance parole;
  • Have continuously resided in the United States since you submitted your most recent DACA request that was approved;
  • Have not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor, or three or more other misdemeanors; and
  • Do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.
