Crossing immigration checkpoints in DACA
For those of you who live in the border stats, you must be familiar with immigration checkpoints. The US laws allow Border Patrol to check immigration status within 100 miles from the border. Accordingly, DACA approved DREAMers should always carry their EAD card and present it to the officer as proof of their status in the United Status. A document from the USCIS that your application is pending maybe accepted by an agent out of kindness but is actually a confirmation of your undocumented status. Those of you whose applications are not yet approved should avoid check points. Whether approved or not, needless to say, you should never cross the border. Only DACA approved DREAMers with a valid advance parole document are allowed to re-enter the country.
