Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was created to allow undocumented immigrants who entered the United States before June 15, 2007 as a child under the age of 16 the ability to receive deferred action for a period of two years. Applicants must meet specific criteria pertaining to education and public safety, with each applicant being handled on a case-by-case basis.
