DACA Information and Resources

Information and resources about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program

"Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an American immigration policy established by the Obama administration in June 2012. The policy allows some individuals who entered the country illegally as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit. As of 2017, approximately 800,000 individuals—referred to as Dreamers after the DREAM Act bill—were enrolled in the program created by DACA. In 2017 President Trump decided to end it."
