Answer: 

No. An individual with DACA status does not meet our licensing requirements as a lawfully admitted alien.  The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Department website specifically states that deferred prosecution does not provide lawful status to a DACA recipient. Receiving a social security number and card does not provide lawful status to a DACA recipient, it merely provides proof of the work authorization granted by USCIS. To be considered a lawfully admitted alien, you must have a green card or Permanent Resident card.
