what is daca?

“DACA” stands for Deferred Action for certain Childhood Arrivals to the United States. On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people, commonly referred to as “Dreamers,” who came to the United States as children and met several guidelines, could apply for deferred action for a period of two years-subject to renewal. If approved, they would be eligible for work authorization in the form of employment authorization cards, which in turn could often be used to obtain social security cards and drivers licenses or IDs in many states. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period but does not confer lawful status on an individual.
