On a DHS conference call this afternoon, USCIS laid out a broad interpretation of the “in school” requirement for the DREAMer Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) program. In addition to the obvious (enrollment in a public or private elementary, middle, high school, or secondary school), USCIS also stated that certain vocational school, literacy programs, and other types of non-traditional schools may qualify to meet the “in school” requirement. Applicants in such classes should have their programs analyzed to see whether the classes meet the DACA requirement.
