A Brief History of DACA

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was introduced by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in June 2012 under the Obama administration. Its purpose is to protect eligible immigrant youths who came to the United States when they were children from deportation. DACA provides these individuals with a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and makes them eligible for a work permit in the U.S.

Since its inception, DACA has faced various legal challenges and policy changes that have affected its implementation and the security it offers to its recipients. Despite these challenges, it remains a critical lifeline for many individuals, known as “Dreamers,” who consider the United States their home but do not have a formal legal status.

In recent years, there have been attempts to rescind DACA, leading to a series of legal battles that have ultimately preserved the program temporarily.

The current legal status of DACA and its future remains uncertain, as it depends on ongoing court decisions and potential legislative action by Congress. Our firm closely monitors these developments to provide our clients with the most current legal advice.
