Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), is a policy that protects about 800,000 young people known as “DREAMERS” who entered the United States unlawfully as children. The program does not grant them official legal status or a pathway to citizenship, but it does allow them to apply for a driver’s license, social security number, and work permit. In addition, they are also able to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation.
There are different paths to citizenship by naturalization, but there are some general requirements that apply in most situations. In order to qualify for U.S. citizenship, a few qualifications will need to be met. Meeting with the attorney will allow her to determine if one is eligible to apply or not.
A Provisional Unlawful Presence Waiver is a waiver provided by the USCIS indicating that it waives unlawful presence in the United States as a ground of inadmissibility for a given applicant. It is obtained by applying with Form I-601A to the USCIS. It is used by people currently unlawfully present in the U.S. prior to departing the United States for a consular interview.
The Legal Immigration Family Equity Act of 2000, also known as the LIFE Act and as the Legal Immigration and Family Equity Act, along with its Amendments, made some changes to laws surrounding immigration for family members of United States citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents, as well as people eligible for employment-based immigrant visas.
