On June 5, 2014, Secretary of Homeland Security Johnson announced the process for DACA recipients to renew enrollment in the deferred action program. Approvals will begin to expire in September 2014, and to avoid a lapse in the period of deferral and employment authorization it is recommended that recipients submit their renewal request approximately 120 days (four months) before their current period of deferred action expires.
Individuals may request DACA renewal if they continue to meet the initial criteria and these additional guidelines:
- Did not depart the United States on or after August 15, 2012, without advance parole;
- Have continuously resided in the United States since they submitted their most recent DACA request that was approved; and
- Have not been convicted of a felony, a significant misdemeanor or three or more misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.
