Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an executive branch policy that grants immigration relief to certain eligible people. Specifically, DACA allows many of those who were brought into the United States as minors to apply for two-year temporary legal status, on a renewable basis.

DACA offers considerable benefits to those who are eligible to apply for immigration relief. Most importantly, DACA recipients are granted two-year lawful status to live and work within the United States. With this comes several different specific benefits, including the ability to apply for a driver’s license, among others. Additionally, DACA recipients can seek approval to leave and re-enter the United States.
DACA is designed to benefit undocumented immigrants who were brought into the United States as children. Only a limited amount of people qualify for immigration relief under this program. Under the policy, you must meet all of the following requirements to be eligible to apply for DACA:
DACA is currently in flux. While DACA was originally created in 2012 by the Obama Administration, in September of 2017, President Trump announced that DACA was being “ended” and that no new DACA applications would be accepted. As of now, the future of DACA is very much unclear. There have been indications from President Trump, Congressional Democrats and Congressional Republicans that a deal that restores DACA may be possible. Still, whether one will be reached remains to be seen.

Great work from Brittni Rivera, extremely professional. I highly recommend to go with them especially for U visa cases.
Both Jake, who has since relocated, and Lauren (current) are a saving grace to those who they’ve helped. Lauren, who I am working with currently, cannot be more attentive, understanding, and humble in the work and reassurance she gives you. She never makes you feel like you are any less due to your circumstance, she speaks to you more humanely and with compassion more than even a friend or family may. If you’re in the market for an attorney that cares, does her best to accommodate your circumstance and limitations while working your case, I can not recommend enough Lauren.…
Very intelligent, very much helpful, and always answer any question in your mind. Always immediate replies to my questions. Very much trustful. Thank u very much.
Simply put, I shouldn't be here. I had a really complex immigration case and all the firms that we consulted with told us that I virtually had no chance of staying here in the United States for my son. All except Kriezelman Burton.
