In 2012, President Obama’s administration announced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, also known as DACA, a program that allows us to live and work in the United States legally, with the possibility of renewal every two years.

If you, your son, or daughter came to the United States prior to June 15, 2007, were under 16 years old, and meet other requirements, there’s a possibility you or your child may qualify for deferred action.

Throughout the U.S., 450,000 individuals, including myself, have already qualified. If you were already granted deferred action, you can renew your work permit beginning 150 days before the expiration date.

For more information, please call the office of American Friends Service Committee at (515) 274-4851 ext. 13.
