What is DACA?

DACA stands for "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals." DACA is permission from U.S. immigration officials to stay in the U.S. for two years. It can be renewed. It is for some people who arrived as children and lived here for five years before June 15, 2012. A person who qualifies for DACA can apply for a work permit and get a social security number.

DACA Success Stories

The DACA program opens up a world of opportunity for people who, because of their undocumented status, have been unable to access education or other resources that are critical for self-sufficiency and success. Most DACA participants have gotten new jobs, pay increases, driver’s licenses, or bank accounts. For everyone in the DACA program, they need not fear of deportation during their participation in the program.
