Understanding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
Our Indianapolis-based Immigration Lawyers Can Help You with DACA Benefits.
Despite recent political media surrounding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), you can still file a renewal request for DACA – as long as you are eligible.
What is DACA?
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a program to provide protection from removal (deportation) from the United States for individuals who entered the United States as minors. DACA does not grant anyone a visa status and is not a permanent benefit.
With DACA, you may be able to obtain a work authorization card, Social Security number, and a driver’s license or ID card.
