1.What is DACA?

DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, and is a program created by Executive Order by President Obama to temporarily protect certain undocumented immigrants who were brought here as children from deportation, and give them legal work authorization which can lead to valid Social Security Numbers and other benefits. Form I-821D, Form I-765, and Form I-765WS are the way to apply for a grant of deferred action, if the applicant meets certain eligibility guidelines. This grant of deferred action is valid for two years, and you may apply to renew it when it is nearing expiration.
