DACA Toolkit Published DACA 1 is still alive. Many individuals, who have not applied, remain eligible – despite all the news about the death of DACA 2. To assist them, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF) has published a new “toolkit”. The first-of-its-kind toolkit provides guidance and forms to help applicants obtain records required to apply for benefits under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Under DACA 1, undocumented youths who were born after 1981, came to the United States before age 16, and remained in the country since 2007, are eligible to receive relief from potential removal, work authorization, and a Social Security card.
