What Is DACA?

On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of DHS announced that certain people who came to the US as children and meet several other requirements may request consideration of “deferred action” for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization.

The Trump Administration attempted to terminate the program. However, several lawsuits were filed challenging the way the Trump Administration went about that.

What are the Requirements for DACA?

To be eligible for DACA you must meet all of the following requirements:

  1. You were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;
  2. You came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;
  3. You have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;
  4. You 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. You had no lawful status on June 15, 2012;
  6. You 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. You have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor,or three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.
  8. And you are at least 15 years old (unless you are in removal proceedings).
