Celebrating 10 Years of DACA

Over the past decade, DACA has delivered lasting protections for hundreds of thousands of immigrants pursuing the American dream.

For 10 years, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) has allowed more than 825,000 young undocumented Americans who call our nation home to pursue the American dream. While DACA has opened doors to exciting opportunities by serving as critical relief from deportation and providing access to work authorization, it is time to create a pathway to citizenship for all Dreamers.

The positions of American Progress, and our policy experts, are independent, and the findings and conclusions presented are those of American Progress alone. A full list of supporters is available here. American Progress would like to acknowledge the many generous supporters who make our work possible.
