On June 15, 2012, the Obama administration announced the Executive Order for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). It is available to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States before the age of 16 and meet other specific requirements. DACA allows those who qualify to stay in the United States and obtain permission to work for two years at a time, with the opportunity to renew.
ICP’s BIA accredited representatives provide one-on-one consultations to assess eligibility for DACA, also assist clients in determining if they are eligible for any other immigration benefits beyond DACA. For more details about eligibility requirements, necessary documentation and other frequently asked question about DACA, see USCIS “Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.”
Benefits of DACA:
* Defers deportation for two years and is renewable at the end of that two years
* Allows applicants to receive two years of work authorization for legal employment in the United States.
* Some people may qualify to request permission to travel abroad temporarily for humanitarian, educational and/or employment purposes.
