Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was created on June 15, 2012 under former President Barack Obama’s administration issuing a two-year work permit and relief from deportation to qualifying undocumented youth. As of Tuesday September 5th, the Trump administration has repealed DACA. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will provide six months for certain requests for DACA and applications for work authorization.
