Dreamers have been able to pursue their goals and dreams in America through DACA. However, many have been left in limbo after President Trump's decision to try to end the program. One of the requirements for DACA is that applicants must have clean criminal records. Many have wondered if this means that those with a DUI on their record are automatically ineligible for DACA.

To date, there is no information on whether anyone has been approved for DACA with a DUI on their record. It is possible that some applicants have been approved despite having a DUI, but it is also possible that those applicants had other mitigating factors that led to their approval. For example, it is possible that the applicant had a very minor DUI offense or that the offense occurred many years ago. Alternatively, it is possible that the applicant had other significant achievements or contribution to their community that outweighed their DUI.

Ultimately, each DACA application is reviewed on a case-by-case basis. This means that it is difficult to say definitively whether or not someone with a DUI on their record will be approved for DACA. However, it is important to note that a DUI is a serious offense and it is likely that an applicant with a DUI on their record will have a more difficult time obtaining approval.
