The DACA program is an executive action implemented by the Obama administration to grant temporary relief from deportation for those who entered the United States as children. Benefits of the DACA program include a renewable work permit, a social security number, and the ability to apply for a state identification card or drivers license. DACA recipients are also now eligible for Medi-Cal.  
 
Registered attendees will be able to get more information about the DACA program, a free eligibility screening, one-on-one application assistance and document review, and a final review by a Bureau of Immigration Appeals (B.I.A.) accredited representative or authorized immigration attorney.
