Advice and Comments

PC 25400(a)

DACA. Some misdemeanors are “significant misdemeanors” and thus a bar to DACA.2As of this writing in August 2018, persons who have received DACA are permitted to apply for renewal, but many other decisions are tied up in lawsuits. For updates go www.ilrc.org/daca and www.unitedwedream.org. For a description of DACA eligibility and crimes bars, see the section on DACA in § N.17 Relief Toolkit (August 2018) at www.ilrc.org/chart. These include a misd relating to firearms, burglary, DV, sexual abuse, drug trafficking, and DUI, as well as any misd with a sentence imposed (not including suspended) of over 90 days. Conservatively assume that the antique firearms exception will not prevent this, and that a crime of DV will be very broadly defined. Three misd convictions of any kind, arising from three separate incidents, have the same effect. Expungement under PC 1203.4 might eliminate the conviction/s for these purposes.

A single felony conviction also is a bar to DACA, Reduction to a felony per PC 17 will eliminate this bar.

In all cases, even if a conviction is not a bar, it can be a negative discretionary factor. See materials on DACA cited in above endnote.
