Deferred action for childhood arrivals: A program for undocumented youth in the US
U.S. immigration law creates a difficult situation for many undocumented children and young adults who have grown up in the United States. Under current law, children under 18 years of age who were not born in the United States usually have the same immigration status as their parents. If their parents are undocumented, then so are they, regardless of their age when they arrived. As a result, a child who came to the United States as an infant or a toddler might not even realize that he or she is not a U.S. citizen.
