Will Stepparents of American Citizens Qualify For DAPA?

Will stepparents qualify for DAPA/any immigration protection? My stepparent has raised me (US Citizen) since the age of 2 and is legally married/has been living with and financially supporting my legal resident mother for over 20 years. He does not have an expired visa/ came through the border. Thanks, I appreciate any guidance you can provide on this subject.

The answer to whether step parents of U.S. citizens qualify for DAPA is not yet clear. Step parents are generally recognized as parents under the immigration law. Whether they'll be considered eligible for DAPA will, hopefully, become clear once the courts lift the delay on DAPA.
