Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Information and Resources

On June 15, 2012, the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a memorandum allowing individuals who came to the U.S. as children and meet certain guidelines to apply for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).  A person who is granted DACA receives permission to live and work in the U.S. for two years (may be renewed).  If someone is approved for DACA, s/he may apply for a social security number and in most states, a driver’s license.
