If you request consideration for (initial or renewal) DACA, a criminal background check will be a part of the review process. Background checks involve checking biographic and biometric information provided by the individuals against a variety of databases maintained by DHS and other federal government agencies.
DACA is generally accessible if you have not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor, or more than three misdemeanors and do not pose a threat to national security or public safety.
Note: USCIS has indicated that if you knowingly make a misrepresentation, or knowingly fail to disclose facts, in an effort to obtain DACA or work authorization through this process, you will be treated as an immigration enforcement priority to the fullest extent permitted by law, and be subject to criminal prosecution and/or removal from the United States.
If you believe that a criminal background check may reveal a record, have a consultation with an experienced immigration attorney before filing for DACA.
