Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, also known as DACA or sometimes as the “Dream Act,” is a program that allows certain young people to receive temporary protection from deportation, employment authorization, a social security number, and other benefits.
Due to recent political changes, the DACA program is once again open to new applicants, as well as renewals. You may qualify if:
– you entered the United States before your 16th birthday, on or before June 15, 2007
– if you graduated high school, have a GED, or are currently enrolled in school and
– do not have a serious criminal history
We assist our clients with registering for DACA for the first time, as well as with renewals. Additionally, some participants in the DACA program may be eligible for a travel document to temporarily leave the United States and return.
The Milwaukee Immigration Attorneys at Layde & Parra have experience ensuring that this travel document process goes smoothly.
***Please note: There may be more changes coming for the DACA program, including allowing people to apply who do not currently qualify, or even a path to citizenship.
