15. DACA:

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

On June 15, 2012, President Obama signed a memo calling for deferred action for certain undocumented young people who came to the U.S. as children and have pursued education or military service here. Applications under the program which is called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) begin on August 15, 2012.

DACA delays legal action against undocumented teens and young adults for two years and give them work permits. Yes, comprehensive immigration reform is necessary, but Obama can't unilaterally make sweeping changes in the law, even if the country is behind him as it seems to be. He needs the support of Congress and that's what he's been working on getting for some time now, including over his Thanksgiving vacation as seen in this thread.

p.s. thanks Cha!
