Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme was launched by the Obama Administration to protect people who entered the United States unlawfully as children. While it does not grant official legal status or a pathway to citizenship for these immigrants, it allows them to apply for a driver’s license, social security number and work permit.
The Biden Administration proposed new DACA rules that aims to preserve and fortify protection for certain undocumented immigrants who entered the United States as children prior to June 15, 2012 and were born after June 16, 1981.This excludes documented dreamers, who entered as children of long-term visa holders.
