The Department of Homeland Security August 3 provided additional information on the deferred action for childhood arrivals processes, during a national media call, in preparation for the August 15 implementation date.
On June 15, Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and met other key guidelines could be eligible, on a case-by-case basis, to receive deferred action. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is finalizing a process by which potentially eligible individuals may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals.
