The Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) was an Executive Order by President Barack Obama in 2014 in order to protect a category of illegal aliens against deportation.

DAPA would have given would have given executive amnesty to about 4 million illegal immigrants but was blocked by federal courts before its full implementation. In June 2017, the Trump Administration announced it was ending the program entirely.[1]

DAPA is an extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which also was created during the Obama Administration.
