Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson recently announced the process for individuals to renew enrollment in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA is a discretionary determination to defer removal action against an individual. Individuals in DACA will be able to remain in the United States and apply for employment authorization for a period of two years. Deferred action does not provide/confer on the beneficiary a lawful immigration status or a path to permanent residence.

Individuals previously enrolled in DACA may now renew their deferral for a period of two years. USCIS will begin accepting renewal requests immediately and will also continue to accept requests for DACA from individuals who have not previously sought to access the program.
