Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was an American immigration policy that allowed some individuals who entered the U.S. as minors, and had either entered or remained in the country illegally, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit or Employment Authorization Document (“EAD”). In 2017, the Federal Government announced that it was ending the program. If you currently have DACA, you will be allowed to retain both DACA and your work authorization until they expire, unless terminated or revoked. The U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Service (“USCIS”) will adjudicate, on an individual, case by case basis properly filed DACA requests and applications that were pending at the time the end of the program was announced.
