DACA has helped millions of young immigrants remain in the United States. With the recent changes in the immigration system, it is important for individuals to stay up to date with the recent deferred action requirement adjustments.
To help you identify if you are eligible to be a DACA recipient, our Orange County immigration attorneys explain the qualifications needed to apply for DACA in 2021.
What Is Deferred Action?
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a policy that allows young unauthorized immigrants to remain in the country with temporary lawful status. If you were born outside of the United States and entered the country as a child without proper authorization, you may be able to avoid deportation and obtain temporary work authorization.
Are New Applicants Being Accepted for DACA?
DACA has been an ever-changing program that many immigrants often feared would shut down. Thankfully, the DACA program remains and continues to help millions of young immigrants across the country. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has recently implemented adjustments to the DACA program. The USCIS is now:
- Accepting first-time requests for deferred action;
- Accepting renewal requests for deferred action;
- Accepting applications for advance parole documents;
- Extending one-year grants for deferred action to two years; and
- Extending one-year employment authorization documents to two years.
