What Is DACA?

DACA – or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – it’s a program set up during the Obama administration designed to protect the children of undocumented people who crossed the border into the United States. Today, Sarah Rogerson, Professor at Albany Law, helps us to break down the ins and outs of the program.

Video above and more information is listed on the New York City Mayor’s website. Additional information on DACA can be found online at the New York Immigration Coalition and the National Immigration Law Center. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed this complaint in response to President Donald Trump’s action involving deferred action. And lastly: the federal government’s website with information on DACA renewals.
