Correct I-765 Eligibilty for DACA

U. S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is making sure that there is no confusion while requesting work authorization for Deferred Action.
It is to be noted that the eligibility category for work authorizations under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is NOT the same eligibility category as work authorizations under regular deferred action.
The current I-765 instructions indicate that people requesting work authorization under DACA should write “C33” in question 16 of Form I-765.
Please do NOT write “C14”, as this is the category for regular deferred action.
