SCOPE

This guide is designed to provide general information and links to resources about DACA – Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. 

WHAT IS DACA?

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a kind of administrative relief from deportation. The purpose of DACA is to protect eligible immigrant youth who came to the United States when they were children from deportation. DACA gives young undocumented immigrants: 1) protection from deportation, and 2) a work permit. The program expires after two years, subject to renewal.

IMPORTANT UPDATES TO DACA:

Initial DACA Applicants – No new initial applications are being accepted at this time.

Renewal DACA Applicants – For those who need a DACA renewal (as in their DACA is expiring before March 6, 2018), all renewal applications are due to USCIS no later than October 5, 2017.
