A study by the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution examines the implementation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to inform future efforts in support of unauthorized immigrants. The study, which takes a close look at application activity among young immigrants, finds that although DACA is a federal program, it requires civil society intermediaries and state and local government intervention for successful implementation. The report also finds that the decision to apply for DACA is influenced by individual, family, and immigrant origin-community dynamics.
