Special Report on The Long-Term Impact of DACA

By Roberto G. Gonzales, Sayil Camacho, Kristina Brant and Carlos Aguilar

On Thursday, November 7th 2019, the IIH in partnership with the National UnDACAmented Research Project released a report on long-term impacts of DACA.  This report outlines new findings from the National UnDACAmented Research Project, a longitudinal national study aimed at understanding the impacts of DACA on the program's beneficiaries. Respondents in this latest wave of research include a diverse sample of 408 DACA beneficiaries from six states, representing an array of racial, ethnic, economic and educational backgrounds. The report details how DACA has served as a vehicle for social mobility, how the experience of beneficiaries varies across states, and the barriers that remain within the policy.
