DACA

For DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) beneficiaries, the road to a secure future in the United States can be challenging. DACA provides vital protections, including deferred action, safeguarding against deportation, and granting work permits. However, to ensure these benefits continue, it's essential for DACA recipients to maintain their status through timely renewals.

Who Are Dreamers?

Dreamers are undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children. They often have spent the majority of their lives in the U.S. and identify as Americans. While there are an estimated 3.6 million Dreamers in the U.S., only approximately 653,000 currently enjoy DACA protection. This number represents just a fraction of the total Dreamer population, as DACA stopped accepting new applicants. The majority of Dreamers are currently unprotected, highlighting the urgent need for a permanent solution.

The Benefits of DACA Renewal

DACA recipients hail from nearly 150 different birth countries, with around 80% born in Mexico. They reside all over the United States. The average DACA recipient arrived in the U.S. at the age of 7, and many have lived in the country for more than 20 years. Importantly, DACA recipients are parents to over 250,000 U.S. citizen children.

Why DACA Renewals are Crucial

  • Avoiding Expired Status: DACA beneficiaries must not let their DACA status expire for more than a year. If your DACA status lapses for more than a year, your renewal application will be considered a new application. Currently, USCIS is not processing new DACA applications, making timely renewal critical.

  • Continued Protections: DACA provides temporary but essential protections from deportation, allowing you to live and work in the United States without fear. Renewing your DACA ensures that you maintain these vital safeguards

  • Work Authorization: DACA grants you the right to work legally in the U.S. Renewing your DACA means you can continue to pursue job opportunities, advance your career, and contribute to your community.
