In the summer, President Obama announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several key guidelines are eligible to request Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). If the request is granted, the applicant receives permission to stay in the US for up to two years, subject to renewal, and is eligible for work authorization.

The ITIN is a number issued by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to people who do not have and do not qualify for a Social Security Number. The main purpose of the ITIN is to file federal income tax returns. It does not change a person’s immigration status and it does not grant authorization to work. However, ITIN holders can use the number to open a bank account and to establish credit.
