The aim of this dissertation is to understand the impact of new policy aimed at undocumented youth. Previous research has demonstrated the impact of law negatively affecting unauthorized youth. Primarily, they are denied from legally joining the labor force and applying the skills they learned in high school or college. Socialized as Americans, “illegality” impedes their development as adults and leading a normal life similar to their peers. Those who qualify under DACA will be given a chance to change their legal status from “illegal” to a quasi-legal status with the allocation of two-year temporary work permits. Therefore, this dissertation seeks how these DACA impacts them in the labor market, educational opportunities, how it alters their daily life, the process of those legally denied from legally participating in the American labor force.
