Last week, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released updated statistics about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy. New data shows that 300,000 requests for deferred action have been submitted and 53,273 individuals have been granted relief under this new policy. The new data does not indicate how many beneficiaries have received work permits under the program or whether any requests for deferred action had been denied. At the rate of processing applications, it is likely that more than 100,000 requests will be granted by USCIS by the end of the year. Learn more.
