What will happen after DACA and DAPA program end?

Ok, lets say my husband comes out of hiding to applie for this program and then it ends three years later. What will happen to him after that? We feel that they will deport him because we are about to give them all his information and where to find him.

If your husband is eligible to apply for DAPA and is not an immigration enforcement priority, it's highly unlikely that he'll face deportation if he is granted DAPA and the program eventually ends. US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the agency which will administer DAPA, answered this question by saying: "Individuals whose cases are deferred pursuant to DACA will not be referred to ICE." (See USCIS' complete answer at: Question 19: http://www.uscis.gov/humanitarian/consideration-deferred-action-childhood-arrivals-process/frequently-asked-questions). It's important to remember that only Congress can change the law. Regardless of DACA, DAPA or any deferred action, undocumented immigrants will always be at risk of deportation. That's why I advise potential applicants to get the advice of a licensed attorney before applying for any immigration benefit.
