Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) at Two: New MPI Findings as Renewal Approaches

Posted in Immigrant Integration by migrationpolicy on August 6th, 2014

This Migration Policy Institute (MPI) webinar explores the findings of a new report about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative and eligible populations two years after its implementation. In this briefing, MPI researchers present their analysis of the immediately and potentially eligible DACA populations nationally and for leading states, as well as broader sociodemographic findings, including English proficiency, educational attainment, poverty level, and more. They also discuss the broader implications of DACA for U.S. immigration and integration policy, as well as lessons that can be applied to the program’s next phase or possible executive action that might expand deferred action to other unauthorized immigrant populations. 

The webinar also introduces MPI's latest data tool, which provides estimates for the U.S. and 41 states of the current and potentially eligible DACA populations, as well as detailed profiles for the U.S. and 25 states.
