    Based on what the White House and USCIS have posted, we believe that the DAPA requirements will be:
    1. The applicant must have a U.S. citizen or LPR son or daughter (of any age), as of November 20, 2014; and,
    2. Has been continuously present in the U.S. since before January 1, 2010; and,
    3. Was physically present in the U.S. in unlawful status on November 20, 2014; and,
    4. Is physically present in the U.S. at the time of making an application for deferred action; and,
    5. Is not an enforcement priority (i.e., has not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or three or more other misdemeanors, and does not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety).

    Hi Ron, do you happen to know if DAPA recipient will be able to apply for a professional licence? In my case commercial pilot licence. Any thoughts are greatly appreciated, thank you Peter.

    I don't know. I suppose it will depend on the state. DAPA recipients will get three years of renewable work authorization. Beyond that, nothing is clear yet.

    Thank you for your answer, I think this won't depend on state. The pilot licencing is up to FAA which is federal administration.

    For obvious reasons, that is a very touchy area. I honestly don't know how they will rule.
