President Obama's Executive Action 2014

On November 20, 2014, the President announced a series of immigration-related executive actions, including the following measures:

  • Expanding the population eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to  people who came to this country before turning 16 years old and have been present since January 1, 2010, and extending the period of DACA based work authorization from two years to three years;
  • Allowing parents of U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents who have been present in the country since January 1, 2010, to request deferred action and employment authorization for three years, in a new Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program, provided they pass required background checks; and
  • Expanding the use of provisional waivers of unlawful presence to include the spouses and sons and daughters of lawful permanent residents and the sons and daughters of U.S. citizens.

These reforms will be implemented approximately 90 days from the date of the President’s announcement.
