DHS Will Reject Initial Requests for DACA As It Weighs Future of the Program

Please see the announcement and memorandum (PDF) issued by Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf. More information will soon be available.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) invited you to participate in a listening session on Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. (Eastern) to discuss the expansion of DACA as part of the recently announced executive actions on immigration.

On Nov. 20, President Barack Obama announced a series of executive actions, including expanding DACA to individuals of any age who came to this country before turning 16 years old and have been present since Jan. 1, 2010. This expansion of DACA will go into effect approximately 90 days following the announcement. The actions also extend the period of DACA and work authorization from two years to three years. During the listening session, USCIS officials provided an overview of the new initiatives and your feedback on DACA expansion.
