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.

First of all, I want to thank Brittni Rivera for helping with my case. Ever since the first day she was working on my case, every time I asked for an update, she would respond quickly. Brittni handled my case with great professionalism and a great outcome. I would highly recommend working with Kriezelman Burton & Associates.
