On September 5, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security issued a memorandum rescinding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals “DACA.” Effective immediately USCIS will no longer accept initial DACA applications. Renewal applications will be accepted until October 5.

What is DACA?

Deferred Action is a program for undocumented immigrants created in 2012 through an executive action by President Barack Obama. It offers protection from deportation for two years and a two-year work permit.

November 2014, Obama expanded DACA through another executive order. Expanded DACA will extend the program from two years to three years and the eligibility requirements will change so that more people qualify. The USCIS had planned to release the application in February 2015. However, due to recent events, the release has been temporarily postponed.

Who qualifies for DACA?

There are several eligibility requirements for DACA including an education requirement, an age requirement and a required amount of time spent living in the U.S.
