Want to know more about DACA?

National Immigration Law Center: DACA 

What is DACA? How are the DREAM Act of 2010 and the 2017 DREAM Act involved?

The DACA section of the National Immigration Law Center website is a great online resource that describes these terms and provides the latest legislative news state-wide and nationally.

The National Immigration Law Center (NILC) is a non-profit organization based in Los Angeles with offices in Washington, D.C. and Berkeley, California, that dedicates itself to advancing the legal rights of low-income immigrants in coordination with other national civil rights organizations. Not only does the NILC provide legal counsel, but also publishes educational materials to inform the public.

Recent events involving the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program spurred legislative action by Congress to propose the 2017 DREAM Act bill. The NILC produced a free downloadable, 4-page PDF table comparing the provisions offered between the DACA program, 2010 DREAM Act, which failed to pass as federal law, and the proposed 2017 DREAM Act.

Knowing what each one provides can help you and your friends understand the legal complexities of this current issue.

For more information, especially current lawsuits or articles from journals, magazines or newspapers, go the LexisNexis: Academic online database at the SWC Library’s Articles and Databases website and type DACA in the Academic Search box.
