I came to the united states at 11 yrs old. I came in August 1999. I graduated from junior high and high school here. I am currently enrolled in college. I still have my I-94 and my old passport. Does the dream act apply to me? If so, please explain what steps would i need to take. Thank you
Hello, It seems like you meet the requirements for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) if you are here without immigration status now. You should speak with an attorney to make sure you can apply for DACA. You need to talk with a lawyer about any criminal cases you have had or any trips that you took outside of the U.S. since you came in 1999. There are a lot of community organizations that can help you apply for DACA for free and many attorneys who can do this case for a low fee. You can start to get your documents together to show that you have been living here in the U.S. since at least 2007 (school records, etc) Ask around and good luck!
There is no dream act. If you are referring to DACA, you might, but you need to meet ALL the requirements. See link below.
