Can I apply for Deffered Action if I've lied about being a US Citizen?

Asked almost 2 years ago - Yorba Linda, CA

My freshmen year of high school I marked "yes" as a US Citizen while I took my PSAT/NMSQT. Those are government tests. I didn't know at the time that I was not a citizen. However, the year after I put that I was not. Will this affect my defered action application?

    Go ahead and apply for DACA. I would suggest getting some help filling out the forms, however.
