Note: Due to a court order, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is currently accepting only DACA renewals.
What is the DACA Program?
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was implemented by the Obama Administration in 2012. Since then, thousands of individuals have benefitted from DACA, which has allowed them to obtain social security numbers, work permits, and has facilitated the process to attend college. In addition, in certain cases, the initial consultation has revealed eligibility for other immigration benefits.
To be eligible for DACA you must:
- Have entered the United States before your 16th birthday;
- Be 30 years old or younger as of June 15, 2012;
- Have been physically present in the United States between June 15, 2007 and June 15, 2012;
- Have a high school diploma, G.E.D., or currently be enrolled in school.
