Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is an Obama Administration program that allows eligible, undocumented immigrants who entered the country as children to receive a renewable two-year work permit and a two year deferral from deportation. Even though DACA does not provide a path to lawful permanent residence status, or citizenship, it allows undocumented immigrants to stay and work in the U.S.
Certain criminal convictions are an automatic bar to DACA eligibility. Reducing, dismissing, or expunging these convictions can sometimes remove that bar to eligibility.
