Will the information I share in my request for deferred action for childhood arrivals be used for immigration enforcement purposes?Generally, unless your case involves a criminal offense, fraud, or a threat to national security or public safety, your case will not be referred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for removal proceedings except where DHS determines there are exceptional circumstances. Thus, information you provide in this request is generally protected from disclosure to for immigration enforcement. The information may be shared with national security and law enforcement agencies, including ICE and U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), for purposes other than removal. BEWARE USCIS says This policy, which may be modified, superseded, or rescinded at any time without notice, is not intended to, does not, and may not be relied upon to create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law by any party in any administrative, civil, or criminal matter.” Basically, this means USCIS could use it at any time, if they chose to and you can’t rely on their promise not to use it.
