The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, was announced by President Barrack Obama in 2012. Many immigrants were brought to the United States by their families when they were very young. This country is the only one they know. This program allows them to stay in the country and not be deported and also allows them to gain a work permit. This program enables hundreds of thousands of young people to live their American Dream. Sometimes, it can be a difficult process, but our team of immigration lawyers and staff are familiar with the process and will get results. Read these success stories to learn about how we have helped other young Dreamers make their dream a reality here in the United States. If you are eligible for this program, contact us today!
