Under what circumstances is deportation possible?

I recently got approved for employment authorization through DACA.Getting a SSN wasn’t difficult but now I can’t seem to get a state ID/license. They tell me the same thing, my immigration status is still pending. I got a letter from DHS telling me that they cannot verify my status and will contact USCIS. It mentioned permanent residence (green card) and form 1-555, which I have never seen in my life. What do I do? Do I need a laywer? Or do I wait this one out?

YOu may want to speak to an attorney in your state (immigration) who can advise you on what documentation you need to provide to the DMV, given your approved DACA, in order to be eligible for a state ID or driver's license in that state, since the requirements may vary from state to state.  i don' tthink this is going to result in any deportation since that is the reason you applied for and obtained DACA unless you are otherwise deportable.
