DACA is a Form of Temporary Immigration Protection

If you’re a young adult that’s lived in the United States for most of your life, yet happen to be undocumented, you may be eligible to remain in the country under a program called the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (commonly referred to as “DACA”).

Defend DACA Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is a U.S. program that permits certain individuals, who came into the country as children and meet certain requirements for eligibility, to apply for consideration of deferred action. If “considered,” the duration period is two years, subject to renewal, and subject for work authorization. In simple terms, DACA offers a form of temporary relief pending anticipated immigration reform at some point in the future.

In order to be eligible under DACA, the following must be true:

  • You arrived in the U.S. prior to turning 16
  • You’re under the age of 31 as of June 2012
  • You continuously resided in the U.S. since June 2007
  • You’re currently receiving or have received a high school diploma or GED
  • If you served in the United States military, you were honorably discharged
  • You have no felony convictions or significant misdemeanor(s)
How to File an Application

To file for DACA, you must:

Renewing Your Deferred Action

If you’ve previously been granted deferred action under the DACA program and your two-year deferred action is up for renewal, you can file an Application for Temporary Protected Status, Form I-821.

DACA Requires Careful Consideration

It’s estimated that approximately 20% of the population of Nevada was born in another country. Given that fact, there is a sizable part of the local population that may be eligible for relief under DACA and to whom the law applies. If you believe you’re eligible for DACA, contact an immigration attorney immediately to find out how you can apply for the program to receive the protection you deserve. To apply for relief under DACA, or to better understand the program, it’s important to speak with an experienced and reputable immigration lawyer.
