Deferred Action 

 

Deferred action is a decision not to deport or not to start deportation proceedings against an undocumented person.  The decision is made by Department of Homeland Security and gives assurances that the beneficiary will not be deported. The decision is valid for a determined period of time and can be renewed.   People who receive Deferred Action can also apply for work authorization and social security number.  

D.A.C.A. UPDATE:

01/14/2018:  USCIS has resumed accepting requests to renew a grant of deferred action under DACA. The DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on Sept. 5, 2017. 


RENEW YOUR DACA RIGHT NOW, USCIS will accept DACA requests only until further notice.    READ MORE HERE or call me at 925-407-2149 for further information.

DEFERRED ACTION IS NOT A PATH TO BECOME A U.S. CITIZEN AND IT IS NOT AMNESTY.
