What is DACA?

On June 15, 2012, President Obama announced the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. DACA is an immigration policy that allows undocumented immigrants that came before their 16th birthday and before June 2007 to apply for a renewable 2-year work permit. At this time only DACA renewal applications for work permits that expire between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018, are being accepted. NO NEW APPLICATIONS ARE ACCEPTED.
