DACA Renewals: What You Need to Know
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a government policy that allows certain undocumented immigrants to obtain temporary, renewable authorization to live and work in the United States. With DACA status comes protection against deportation. In order to apply for DACA immigration protections, an applicant must meet the following criteria:
- Have lived primarily in the U.S. since June of 2007;
- Arrived in the country before turning 16 years of age;
- Graduated from high school, obtained a GED, or still be in school; and
- Have no history of felony offenses or serious misdemeanor offenses.
Under the current structure of the DACA program, deferred action is granted for two years. At that point, DACA must be renewed. If you or your loved one is a DACA recipient, it is imperative that you submit a renewal application in a timely manner. Failure to do so can cause significant problems.
Update for 2021: DACA Renewals are Being Accepted
Since the program was created by the Obama Administration in June of 2012, DACA has been subject to extensive litigation. The Trump Administration even tried to end the program outright. Nonetheless, DACA remains in place. As of early 2021, DACA renewals are being accepted, reviewed, and processed by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If you need help submitting a DACA renewal now, reach out to a Metairie immigration attorney.
