Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

On June 15, 2012, President Obama signed a memo calling for deferred action for certain undocumented young people who came to the U.S. as children and have pursued education or military service here.  U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has been accepting “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA) applications since August 15, 2012.  DACA-eligible individuals are also known as ‘DREAMers’.
