Background
On November 20, 2014, President Obama announced a series of executive actions on immigration (also referred to as administrative relief) to fix today’s broken immigration system. These new executive actions will expand the current Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and create the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) program for undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) known as Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA).

Now, an estimated 4.9 million undocumented immigrants, including 400,000 Asian American immigrants, will be eligible for temporary relief from deportation. In addition to the 30,000 undocumented Korean Americans currently eligible for DACA, just over 48,000 Korean Americans are estimated to be newly eligible for relief.

More Information about DACA and DAPA:
