August 2015 marks the three-year anniversary of the implementation of the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and approximately one year since U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began processing DACA renewal requests. Renewal offers current DACA beneficiaries an additional two-year reprieve from deportation as well as work authorization, yet not all those eligible to file for renewal have done so.

On this webinar, MPI experts unveil data on characteristics of the potential DACA applicant pool as well as a brief examining who is signing up for DACA renewal and some of the administrative difficulties surrounding the renewal program. Learn about DACA renewal rates, cases pending adjudication, barriers facing those who seek to renew, and potential consequences of failing to secure renewal on time. Tips for navigating MPI data resources on the DACA population is also provided.
