Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Our Immigration Lawyers Support the DREAM Act

We at Salas Law believe in the dream of coming to the United States and / or obtaining citizenship. Some of the most heartwarming work we do is assisting DREAMers, those who qualify for deferred action under the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, to realize some of that dream. We have successfully helped individuals obtain deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA) and work authorization. When we consult with DREAMers, we know that we are helping make a difference by helping them and we believe that they are some of the most deserving individuals.
