According to the largest study of its kind to date, the economic and educational gains made by beneficiaries of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) continue to grow.
The survey found that 45 percent of respondents currently are in school, with 72 percent pursuing a bachelor’s degree or higher. Among those in school, 94 percent said that, because of DACA, “I pursued educational opportunities that I previously could not.”
