San Diego Dream Act Lawyer by Habib Hasbini, Attorney at Law
Thousands of youth and young adults in California live in fear of deportation from the United States. Though many of these young people have lived in the U.S. for most of their lives, they are essentially victims of their parents’ undocumented status.
What Does The Dream Act Do?
The Dream Act (Deferred Action for Child Arrivals – “DACA”) is an important piece of federal legislation that can help young people who come to the United States as children. Important benefits of the DREAM Act, which gives
children of undocumented immigrants the ability to live normal lives in the United States, includes two years of deferred action (delay of removal proceedings), the ability to go to school and obtain a work permit, and the ability to obtain a driver’s license.
