On June 15th, 2012, President Barack Obama announced that certain undocumented immigrants would be able to qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or (DACA). If you qualify for DACA, you can receive protection from deportation and a permit to work in the U.S. for 2 years.
The official forms to apply can be found here:
Form I-821D          Form I-765          Form I-765WS
For more information, visit our office every day from 10pm to 6pm. You can also call us at 215-218-9079
Deferred Action is not the DREAM Act; it does not grant our youth better access to college, and it does not offer a path to citizenship. For these reasons, Juntos recognizes DACA as a step in the right direction but not the solution we need to fix our broken immigration system. We therefore also commit to keep fighting for a more just society that is inclusive of all of us.
See the Juntos FAQ on DACA below for more information on the application process. Please feel free to share it with all who need more information.
¡En la lucha!
