La Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA
(en inglés, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) es una política migratoria del gobierno de Estados Unidos que tiene como finalidad beneficiar a ciertos inmigrantes indocumentados que llegaron a Estados Unidos cuando eran niños y que cuentan con cierto nivel educativo, en particular a los denominados dreamers.
It is commonly referred to as although DACA is just a mode of deferred action by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

What requirements must you meet to obtain DACA?

According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), a person can request consideration of this deferred action if you: If you are under 31 years of age as of June 15, 2012

You came to the United States before your 16th birthday.

Has continuously resided in the United States from June 15, 2007, to the present

You were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, at the time of filing with USCIS.

Had no legal status on June 15, 2012.

Are currently in school or have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a General Education Development (GED) Certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or United States Armed Forces USA.

Have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or three or more misdemeanors, nor do you pose a threat to national security or public safety.

DACA is not a right or a law, but an executive action on the procedural discretion of the immigration authority, and does not provide "legal" immigration status or a path to citizenship. If you think you qualify, at ALAMI LAW we will help you carry out the entire process, from start to finish.
