Updated Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Statistics

USCIS has released updated statistics on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.  Through November 15th, a total of about 309,000 applications have been received.  About 53,000 have been approved.

There was a slight increase in the number of applications between September, where almost 105,000 aliens applied, and October, where about 113,000 applied.  In November, where data for only half the month is available, a little less that 44,000 applications were submitted.  November is therefore on track for around 90,000 applications.

It has been estimated that 1.4 million people present in the United States meet the qualifications of the President's program.  This would mean that to date, a little more than 20% of those believed to be eligible have applied.

The New York Times notes that the agency has not released how many applications, if any, have been denied.
