The DACA deadline is fast approaching for young immigrants who want to renew their paperwork under an Obama-era program that shields them from deportation.

Dreamers Have Been Lining Up as Early as 3am to Renew Work Permit as DACA Ends

President Donald Trump is phasing out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and asking Congress to come up with a replacement. Immigrants in the program whose permits expire between now and March have until Thursday to get renewals.

People have been lining up as early as 3 a.m. to get a spot at a Southern California legal clinic that helps immigrants with their paperwork. And advocacy groups around the country have been making donations to help immigrants cover the $500 renewal fee.
