What is DACA?

DACA is a program for certain people who came to the United States as children, to request deferred action. Deferred action is a prosecutorial discretion against removing that person from the United States for a certain number of years. Currently it’s for two years subject to renewal.

Applicants may be eligible for DACA if they meet certain age requirements. That is that they came to the United States before their 16th birthday and others. That they’ve completed or are currently in school, and that they don’t pose a serious risk to safety and other criminal history requirements.
