What is DACA? 

Many children and youth were brought to the USA by their parents or family members.  DACA  can protect them from deportation, provide work permits and give access to scholarships and health insurance.

The DACA program is open to ALL ethnic groups.

So far, over 7.3 million undocumented people have applied.
