Prior to the presidential election, young people faced a great deal of uncertainty about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) policy introduced by President Obama.  Mitt Romney had previously vowed to veto a DREAM Act and had stated that he would close the DACA program.  This position understandably caused many to second-guess whether DACA was worth the risk of disclosure.  With Obama’s victory, however, the great uncertainty is now greatly alleviated.  The only remaining big question is whether Congress will enact a DREAM act or even a more comprehensive immigration reform to permanently resolve the status question of these young people.
