ABSTRACT
The article discusses the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy and the status of DACA beneficiaries as of April 2013, focusing on various proposals which would allow DACA beneficiaries to receive state benefits such as driver's licenses. Constitutional and equal protection challenges to immigrant-restrictive license laws are examined. The author argues that legal precedents are not favorable to DACA beneficiaries.
