Athens Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an executive order that was passed to help unlawful immigrants work in the US. The purpose in creating this program is to grant authorization and work permits to unlawful immigrants who came to the US before age of 16.
However, this program doesn’t provide a path to Citizenship or grant them legal status, since it was only created to avoid the deportation of skilled people from the United States. Once an individual has registered in this program he will be able to get a work permit, social security number, and driver’s license in the US. In other words, DACA turns the unlawful immigrants into temporary lawful immigrants who can enjoy all the benefits in the US. The DACA registered immigrants have to renew their status every two years to continue working in the US without hindrance or deportation.
