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 stakeholder teleconference on Thursday, Dec. 18, 2014, from 4 to 5 p.m. (Eastern) to discuss the DACA renewal process.

On June 5, 2014, USCIS announced a DACA renewal process and published a revised Form I-821D, Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, that individuals must use to renew or request DACA for the first time. On Nov. 20, 2014, the president announced a series of executive actions on immigration, including extending the period of DACA and work authorization from two years to three years.

During the teleconference, USCIS officials shared information about the DACA renewal process and extended DACA validity period, as well as answered general questions.
