Services > DREAMers
The DACA program was announced on June 15, 2012, under which the Department of Homeland Security grants deferred action to “DREAMers (undocumented youth)”. The DREAMers who are granted deferred action will not be deported and will be able to obtain a work permit, which in turn will allow them to obtain a social security card and a driver’s license. In order to be eligible for deferred action, individuals must:
1. Have come to the United States under the age of sixteen;
2. Have continuously resided in the United States for at least five years preceding June 15, 2012 and were present in the United States on June 15, 2012;
3. Currently be in school, have graduated from high school, have obtained a general education development certificate, or are honorably discharged veterans of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States;
4. Have not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety;
5. Be under the age of thirty-one.
Due to Federal Court Orders, USCIS is currently accepting only requests to renew a grant of deferred action under DACA. USCIS is not accepting requests from individuals who have never before been granted deferred action under DACA.
