The DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is an immigration policy that was created by the Obama administration which protects immigrants from being deported so they can receive a work permit and attend school.

Who is eligible for DACA?

Students who are eligible for DACA must have entered the US before the age of 16 and have resided here continuously for five years. They also must be attending a school or have already received a high school diploma or GED. The applicants can’t have felonies or significant misdemeanors and have no US status since 2012.

Will the current administration seek to end programs like DACA?

The latest official statement about DACA from US Citizenship and Immigration services (USCIS) states they’ll continue accepting applications. President Donald Trump is yet to release his plans for the DACA plan.
