Program to protect deportation of dreamers

In 2012, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was created to protect thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

The vast majority of Dreamers come from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Peru, this was reported by the Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in December 2020.

Currently, there are many limitations for unauthorized immigrants to obtain their permanent residence with a green card. You must live in the country for 5 continuous years to be able to obtain it prior to having applied for citizenship.

This program was canceled during the government of Donald Trump, which had considered several bills to adjust the immigration status of DACA recipients. Therefore, to date, these efforts have not materialized in order to offer immigrants the path to citizenship.
