DACA Immigration

DACA grants certain young people legal residence in the country, permitting them to obtain work authorization for two years. It is a variation of the DREAM Act, which has not been signed into law.

If you entered the United States — even illegally — before the age of 16, have graduated high school or earned your GED and have not committed an excluding offense (such as a crime of moral turpitude), you may be protected by DACA. You must prove that you were present in the United States from June 15, 2007 to June 15, 2012, when President Obama signed the bill into law. Once you are approved, you will be entitled to a work authorization.
