Tracy, CA asked in Immigration Law and Gov & Administrative Law for California

Q: Can Dreamers go on cruise from CA/OR/WA-HI, CA/HI-AK, TX-NY/ME, or vice versa if it doesn't land on a foreign nation?

By this, I mean if a Dreamer doing so won't risk deportation or cancelation of DACA. And of course, this would be in times when things get back to normal.

The 2 letter codes represent the states while the hyphen represents the word "to".

I was also wondering if a Dreamer can also go on a cruise or icebreaker (one authorized for tourists and the public) from northern Alaska to the icecap near the North Pole while not getting near a different nation (or if not, going only bit ways farther north than northern Alaska not exceeding 5 degrees farther north), or on the winter, with rangers or authorized patrols trained accordingly, going in a tough car with great tires on ice from northern Alaska to much farther north, maybe even to the North Pole, but even if legal, I don't think it would be practical, as the North Pole is twice as far from northern coast of Alaska as the northern coast of Alaska is from Anchorage, Alaska, and would be all on ice.

A: I do not suggest this. Even though you may not arrive at a port outside the USA, each time you exit or enter the ship you go through customs.
