  • I’m a 20 y/o immigrant and I need to move out

    So I’ve been living in America since I was 10, illegally, and because I don’t have A social security number I can’t get a job, I also don’t fall under any categories to get DACA which has made everything even more difficult,’y family complains about everything and anything I do specially my not being able to work, my siblings are American so they don’t understand and I’m tired of my family but I need money to move out and rent a place but I can’t get a job because of my immigrant status. What should I do?
