Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA is a program to help young people who came to the U.S. as children. Through DACA, about 800,000 people have had a temporary permission to work and live in the U.S. without fear of deportation. On September 5, 2017, the Trump administration began to close the program. ​Due to rulings by federal judges, some people can still apply to renew DACA. Refer to the following DACA resource guides from our partners for information on this evolving subject.
