Deisy Caro is a student at Sacramento State University who grew up in the small central valley town of Delhi, California.
She was brought to California by her parents when she was five years old. Now, at age 32, she's preparing to graduate from college. But she wouldn’t have been able to attend Sacramento State or work legally to pay for her education without the implementation of a presidential executive action in 2012 called the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
DACA, as it’s known, gives undocumented immigrants who were brought here by their parents the ability to work, drive and go to school in the United States.
As part of our ongoing series focusing on undocumented immigration to California, we’ll hear Caro explain what it’s like to immigrate to the United States and live here without authorization for more than two decades.
