The subset of individuals who received DACA from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) may request renewal of their deferred action 120 days prior to the expiration of their original 2-year period of deferred action, according to a notice published yesterday on the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website. 

The notice does not apply to the vast majority of DACA recipients who received DACA through USCIS. Individuals who received DACA through ICE—most of whom received DACA between June 15, 2012 and August 15, 2012, the period before USCIS began accepting formal applications—will be required to apply for DACA as if for the first time, providing proof that they meet all of the relevant guidelines. Individuals who do not receive a renewal before the expiration of their original DACA grant will fall out of status and lose work authorization.
