DACA

Support for DACA Recipients

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an immigration policy founded by the Obama administration in June 2012. DACA allows certain illegal immigrants who entered the country as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit.

On September 5, 2017, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) initiated a phase out of the program. DHS will provide a limited, six-month window during which it will consider certain requests for DACA and applications for work authorization, under specific parameters. In Hawaii, this will directly affect around 600 individuals, and indirectly thousands more.

In line with our firm’s mission of advocating for immigrants and defending their rights, Aloha Immigration will provide legal advice at no charge to Hawaii-based DACA recipients in need.

If you are a Hawaii-based DACA recipient and require legal advice, representation or just someone friendly to speak with, please contact us.
