DACA Application Resources
On December 4, 2020 a federal judge ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to fully restore the original DACA program.
What does this mean for me?
USCIS must start accepting initial DACA requests from first-time applicants.
Effective December 4, 2020, USCIS must begin to process DACA first-time requests. This includes all people who were eligible for the program but were not able to apply before the September 2017 termination, and those who applied after the June 2020 Supreme Court decision but had their request rejected.
A person can be eligible for DACA if they:
- Were born after June 15, 1981;
- Came to the United States before their 16th birthday;
- Were physically present in the U.S. on June 15, 2012 and when applying for DACA;
- Had no lawful status on June 15, 2012;
- Have continuously resided in the U.S. since June 15, 2007 until the present;
- Meet certain educational requirement or were honorably discharged from the U.S. Armed Forces; and
- Have not been convicted of certain crimes
Individuals who are interested in applying for the program should consult a legal service provider to see how they can prepare and file a request. To find a legal service provider in your area, visit: https://bit.ly/ianimmhelp.
