What is DACA?
DACA or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a decision from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to not deport someone. Certain people who came to the United States as children and meet certain requirements may apply for deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. This status does not lead to permanent residency but DACA recipients are eligible for work authorization. With a work permit, an immigrant can apply for a social security number as well as a state ID.
What evidence must be submitted to qualify for DACA?
To qualify for DACA you must submit evidence, including support documents, showing that you: were under the age of 31 as of June, 15 2012; came to the U.S. before your 16th birthday; have continuously resided in the U.S. since June 15, 2007 to the present; were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012; entered without inspection before June 15, 2012, or your lawful immigration status expired as of June 15, 2012; are currently in school, have graduated, or obtained a certificate of completion; and have not been convicted of a felony or significant misdemeanor.
