A Haitian immigrant student who holds Temporary Protected Status doesn't qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

Immigration officials consider individuals with TPS to be in the U.S. lawfully, and thus not eligible for DACA, the program President Obama created for undocumented youth

Q: I AM here with Temporary Protected Status. Should I apply for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals? I am a political science student at Hunter College, CUNY. In 2010 when a terrible earthquake hit in my birth country of Haiti, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services granted me TPS.
Name Withheld, New York
Because you already have legal status, you don’t qualify for DACA, the program President Obama created for undocumented youth. USCIS considers individuals with TPS to be here lawfully and thus not eligible for DACA. In some ways, TPS is a better status than DACA. TPS holders have an easier time getting travel permission. In any event, neither status provides a direct path to permanent residence.
