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

Individuals who receive deferred action will not be placed into deportation proceedings or removed from the United States for a specified period of time unless their deferral is terminated unexpectedly. If you do receive deferred action, you may be eligible for employment authorization or a work permit. 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.
