Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Congratulations! Yes, you can definitely travel within the USA upon having been approved for DACA. Once obtained your work permit it is highly recommended that you apply for a SSN as well as a CA state issued ID or better yet, driver's license. That's all you'll need to show when crossing the TSA security lines at US airports: a valid state issued ID. If that were not possible, or you need to travel in a hurry, then travel on your valid Mexican passport, but be sure to have your DACA approval notice and work permit on you - just in case - but do not show it as ID with which to cross the TSA security lines, for if you do, you will be confusing them and you inevitably risk being pulled aside.
