DACA

What is DACA?

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. DACA recipients have met specific criteria pertaining to education and public safety, with each applicant being handled on a case-by-case basis. 

On July 16, 2021, a federal court found DACA unlawful. The government cannot grant new DACA applications, but existing DACA recipients are allowed to retain their grant of DACA and apply for renewal.
