Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) allows certain individuals, who meet specific guidelines, to request consideration of deferred action from United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Under this immigration policy, qualifying individuals who were brought to this country as children may defer action on their legal status for a period of two years.

Individuals who receive deferred action will not be placed into removal proceedings or removed from the United States for a specified period of time unless terminated. If you receive deferred action, you may be eligible for employment authorization. There are numerous guidelines to meet in order to qualify under DACA, which provides an avenue of relief for Dreamers and other immigrant youth facing deportation.
