Coming Out of the Shadows Through DACA

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a temporary lifeline for thousands of young immigrants. The Migration Policy Institute has reported that California ranks 11th in the nation for applications to the DACA program. This low ranking is unfortunate when you consider that the state actually has the largest number of people who are eligible for the program. Yet, only about 61 percent of the state's eligible population have applied for the program. This is slightly less than the 63 percent national rate.

For relatives who are currently living legally in California, the federal government has changed stances and is now preparing to allow children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to seek asylum status.
