Deferred Action Public Service Announcement in English

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.

In one particular case, this man from Eritrea had not seen his wife and children in nine years. And he was such a ‘Dad’ figure, you could tell how much it hurt him not to be around his family. He cried in my office a couple times – here was this man in his 50s.
