Options for Undocumented Immigrants

Undocumented Koreans

When most people in the U.S. think of undocumented migrants, few think of Koreans. However, Koreans are the 7th most prominent nationality among undocumented migrants in the U.S.

Many of these undocumented immigrants struggle to continue school, find a job, and establish themselves in the U.S.

What is DACA?

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
On June 15th, 2012, President Barack Obama announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security would not deport certain undocumented youth who came to the United States as children. The Obama administration called this program Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.
Deferred Action is a result of more than 10 years of immigration advocacy work and community organizing.
DACA is renewable every two years.

What are the benefits of DACA?

Successfully applying for DACA provides great benefits. First, DACA recipients are under prosecutorial discretion which would defer them from deportation. DACA recipients will also be given work permits, driver’s license, social security number, and advance parole.
DACA recipients can also apply for MAVNI (Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest) program.
MAVNI is a military recruiting program that allows legal non-citizens with language or medical skills to join the Army.
Individuals who join the Army through this program are given expedited citizenship.
