What you need to know about the end of childhood deferment action

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), was put into place in 2012. Unfortunately, it is coming to an end.

The deferment could be filed for a period of up to two years. During that time, the individuals would be able to work and prevent deportation proceedings.

Does your child qualify for American citizenship?

There are two common ways a child can qualify for automatic United States citizenship. The first is that any child born within the country gains United States citizenship the moment they are born. The second is that any child born abroad to an American citizen also automatically qualifies to receive United States citizenship at the time of their birth.
