In light of current events, it is unclear whether DACA will be renewed in 6 months, AND applications are no longer being accepted as of September 5, 2017.
We dare to dream of a better tomorrow. We dream of a future in which our friends, families, and neighbors will be able to keep contributing to our society and work together to overcome hardship as a community.
We pledge to never alienate DREAMERS. We pledge to hold great pride in the DREAMERS of our community. These human beings truly represent the values that make our nation great, they exude the ideals of hope, determination, and a better tomorrow.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a kind of administrative relief from deportation. The purpose of DACA is to protect eligible immigrant youth who came to the United States when they were children from deportation. DACA gives young undocumented immigrants: 1) protection from deportation, and 2) a work permit. The program expires after two years, subject to renewal.
