Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) – Dreamers in USA

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is the program which offered certain young undocumented USA immigrants, typically brought to the United States as children, work permits and a two-year renewable reprieve from deportation.
It was introduced by President Barack Obama through executive action five years ago.

Since the program’s inception, nearly 800,000 have signed up. In many states, these so-called Dreamers have been eligible not only to work, but also to receive driver’s licenses and in-state tuition at public colleges.

There were 106,341 requests pending as of Aug. 20: 34,487 initial requests and 71,854 renewals. Those who have DACA status can keep it until it expires. Beneficiaries whose status expires before March 5, 2018 can renew their two-year deportation protection and work permit by Oct. 5. There are approximately 200,000 people in this group, the last to benefit from the program, which will fully expire in 2020.

President Trump  is currently planning to  End this  Obama-era program that shields young undocumented immigrants from deportation  and Calls on Congress to Act.
