Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). This program was initially implemented on June 15, 2012 when the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years and obtain work authorization, subject to renewal. Thousands of individuals have already renewed their deferred action and work authorization for an additional two years. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide lawful status.
