In order to qualify for DAPA, those persons must meet certain requirements. Those include that the person applying is an undocumented individual living in the US who is the parent of a US Citizen or lawful permanent resident and who has lived in the United States continuously since January 1, 2010. Additionally, the applicant had to have a son or daughter who is a US citizen or lawful permanent resident on November 20,2014 and the applicant is not an enforcement priority for removal from the United States. An enforcement priority for removal usually refers to persons who are threats to national security, border security, and public safety. The full application and rules have not yet been released but those are expected to come around May, 2015.
