Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

DACA - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

President Obama announced on June 15, 2012, that the U.S. Dept. Homeland Security would not deport certain DREAM Act–eligible undocumented youth. Under a directive from the secretary of DHS, these youth will be given temporary relief called “deferred action.”

A new analysis casts some much-needed light on the question of exactly who might be eligible for the Obama Administration’s “deferred action” initiative for unauthorized youth who were brought to this country as children. This initiative offers a two-year, renewable reprieve from deportation to unauthorized immigrants who:

  • are under the age of 31;
  • entered the United States before age 16;
  • have lived continuously in the country for at least five years;
  • have not been convicted of a felony, a “significant” misdemeanor, or three other misdemeanors;
  • and are currently in school, graduated from high school, earned a GED, or served in the military.

Immigrants who meet these criteria are commonly referred to as “DREAMers” because they comprise most (though not all) of the individuals who meet the general requirements of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act.

Who and Where the DREAMers are?

The following list were put together by the Immigration Policy Center as distinct groups based on the requirements above:

  1. Those who are between the ages of 15 and 30 who are either in high school or already have high school diplomas. This group is immediately eligible for deferred action.
  2. Those between the ages of 5 and 14 who will be eligible at some point in the future if the deferred action initiative remains in place.
  3. Those between the ages of 15 and 30 who are not in high school and don’t have high school diplomas. Members of this group might be eligible for deferred action if they get a GED.
