Overview: On June 15, 2012 the Department of Homeland Security announced a new federal policy that grants temporary resident status and employment authorization to certain undocumented youth who were brought to the United States as children. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which took effect on August 15, 2012, promises to expand opportunities for undocumented immigrant youth throughout the country. The International Institute of the Bay Area (IIBA) is a non-profit organization founded in 1918 committed to providing high quality low cost immigration legal services to those in our community. IIBA is the fiscal sponsor and lead convening agency of the Bay Area DACA Collaborative; a ten county initiative aimed to ensure that significant numbers of undocumented youth and young adults have access to DACAs historic benefits.
