Expansion of DACA

The White House is also expanding the existing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Currently this program only covered youths who arrive in the US before June 15, 2007.

The expansion:

  • moves that cutoff date to January 1, 2010.
  • removes the upper age limit, which currently limits DACA eligibility to only those youths who were born after June 15, 1981.
  • Finally, DACA coverage would last three years, not two.
