If I am eligible for DACA, should I apply for that or asylum?

You may apply for both if you are eligible.
I’m 18 and I’ve been living in the U.S. with my family without legal immigration status since I was very young. I just enrolled at a community college, but I’m unable to get my driver’s license and find part-time work. I was considering applying for asylum so I could eventually get a green card, but I learned about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that would give me a work permit. Which one should I apply for?
