Koos Backs DACA
DACA is currently under review, and Normal Mayor Chris Koos has now joined the list of U.S. mayors and other government officials who support extending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. DACA provides individuals who meet certain criteria, work authorization and temporary relief from deportation. To qualify for the program applicants must have arrived to the US before the age of 16, be enrolled in school, have a degree, or be enrolled in the military. In addition, applicants go through a rigorous background check.
