Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

A recent memorandum by the President of the United States of America authorized a discretionary process (meaning not guaranteed) by which certain individuals could receive immigration relief if they met certain criteria. If an individual entered this country under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012, then that person may be able to apply for a deferred action. DACA does not grant lawful permanent resident status or citizenship. In order to qualify an individual must currently enrolled in a GED or other type of program, must have made substantial progress within their program to be considered for renewal after the end of the first two years. A person seeking DACA relief may be eligible for employment authorization, if he or she shows economic necessity for employment.

This information is protected from disclosure to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for enforcement purposes, unless he or she poses a threat to national security (terrorism-related) or public safety (criminal activities). Texas Governor Rick Perry was opposed to DACA and distributed a letter to all state agencies, which served to put on notice that all Texas authorities should understand that DACA’s guidelines confer absolutely no legal status whatsoever to any illegal alien who qualifies for the federal deferred action designation.

People applying for DACA will be required to complete biometrics (fingerprints and photo taken) and any missed scheduled appointments may result in the application being significantly delayed or denied. If your application for DACA is denied, you cannot appeal the decision and you will not receive a refund of any fees paid to USCIS or your attorney.

If you would like to make an application for DACA, contact our city of Dallas immigration lawyers today.
