What Is Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals?
Robert L. Sepp, an experienced Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration attorney in Oregon can help you with DACA laws. DACA is a law that allows those who would be deported or those who have deportation orders to temporarily stay in the United States for two years, with the prospect of possible of renewals, granted that the candidate meets all of the DACA qualification criteria. DACA is not a green card, and it does not give you legal citizenship.
