Meeting Invitation – Korean
DACA is a memorandum signed by President Obama directing U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to practice prosecutorial discretion towards some individuals who immigrated to the United States as children and are currently in this country illegally. They are also eligible for work authorization, but deferred action is not a lawful status nor does it lead to a lawful permanent status. The eligibility requirements for who can apply for DACA are very specific and can be reviewed on the USCIS website at: Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
