  • Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

    On June 15, 2012, the Obama Administration announced that it would not deport certain undocumented persons who entered the U.S. as children.

So, in essence, even though deferred action does not provide a pathway to getting lawful permanent resident status (a greencard) or citizenship, it will allow young people to remain in the U.S. and apply for a work authorization document from the government that entitles them to legally work in the U.S. Content Detail
