Expanded DACA and DAPA

DACA: Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Expanded) – The DACA program, first announced in June 2012, allows youths who came to the United States to apply for deferred action and work authorization. The United States  v. Texas decision does not impact this program.

In 2014, President Obama expanded the DACA program to people of any current age who entered the United States before the age of 16 and lived in the United States continuously since January 1, 2010. It is the expansion of this program that has been stopped.

DAPA: Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents – The DAPA program would have allowed parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to request deferred action and work authorization for three years, provided they have lived in the United States continuously since January 1, 2010, and pass required background checks. This program would not be implemented.
