DACA: Know Your Rights

Now that President Trump is reversing President Obama's DACA guidelines, Americans are looking to find ways to help the DACA individuals as well as fully understand the DACA program.

As you may or may not know, DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. These individuals have been in a legal limbo as they are, quite literally, undocumented and have no way to change their legal status as a non-entity.

The current DACA applications can be renewed, if you follow the guidelines at the official DHS website

If you live in the North Texas area, there is North Texas Dream Team, a non-profit 501(c)(3) public charity that is working on helping the Immigrant Community and is holding DACA trainings and could use your help.
