Got A Dui 6 Years Ago, Can I Still Get Approved For Daca?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, 


Qualifying for DACA with a DUI is possible! I went through an attorney because I was also afraid of being referred to ICE. Thankfully everything worked out and I just received permanent residency. I documented my experience via a blog because there was too much helpful information I wanted to share that could help you:



Good luck too everyone!

hey guys. just seeking advice. i got a dwi back in 2015. havent renewed because i dont qualify. im thinking of taking a shot and renewing but im afraid ill get denied, and all lawyers tell me not to do it. ive stayed out of trouble and it was the biggest mistake of my life. never thought this would affect me for the rest of my life, and i wasnt even told this would affect my daca. according to the lawyer given to me, she said immigration does not look at misdemeanors. guess she wasnt too educated on DACA. i am in NYC and "expungement" does not exist here. wanted to know has anyone ever gotten approved WITHOUT expunging their case. ive got an associates and currently in the process of pursuing my BSN. (nursing) however i cant do that without any documents. any advice??? thanks!
