DREAMer DACA Deferred Action Application Form Released (I-821D)

DREAMer DACA Deferred Action Application Form Released (I-821D)

USCIS today released the I-821D deferred action application form for childhood arrivals. If you bet the over-and-under on how long the DACA application form would be, it's six pages long, or about twice as long as anyone had thought previously.

Of note in the I-821D DACA Application Form:

Unique to all immigration forms, the I-821D asks for all addresses where the applicant has resided since coming to the United States. No other immigration form requires such information.

Regarding criminal, national security, and public safety information, for anyone ever arrested, charged, or convicted of a crime, the I-821D requires "all arrest records, charging documents, dispositions (outcomes), sentencing records, etc.". I am curious as to what is meant by "etc." I am also unsure if the term "etc." is used in other USCIS forms in this manner.

Beyond convictions and arrests, the DACA I-821D Form asks about conduct involving torture, hurting others, and acts of sexual violence.
