Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an immigration policy implemented by the Obama administration in June 2012.
The program allows illegal aliens who arrived in the States as minors to remain in the country and apply for work permits via renewable deferments.
During his campaign, Donald Trump vowed to get rid of the DACA program.
To date, the president has left DACA in place. Speculation by immigration experts is he will allow the program to continue.

DACA helps those who arrived in the United States before their 16th birthday and June 2007, are either a current or graduated high school student or were honorably discharged from the military, were under age 31 as of June 15, 2012, and have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or three other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security.
