Special programs help those who need it most: Children

If you ask many parents who immigrate to the United States why they did it, they'll give you the same answer: They did it for their children. They wanted their kids to have a chance at a better life. They wanted them to have world-class medical care and a good education.

Young children are often brought to the United States without any say in the matter or any knowledge of how the process works. They don't know how to immigrate legally or illegally, they don't know what it means to be documented or undocumented and they can't make any of these choices on their own.

That's part of the reason why President Obama set up the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, often called DACA. The goal is to help children who need it most, giving them a chance to chase their dreams -- and the dreams their parents have for them.

For children to qualify for DACA, they must have come into the country before they are 15 years old. They also have to go to high school and graduate. They can then upgrade their immigration status and get things like the authorization to work, a Social Security number and a driver's license. They don't even have to worry about deportation during this process, as they're granted temporary immunity.

The DACA program has been on the books for roughly five years now, and it can provide those who arrived as children with the tools they need to create a successful future. If you want to learn more about how it works or what you need to do, our website can be very informative and helpful.
