Dobrik initially emigrated from Slovakia to America at six years old. Protected by DACA — Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — Dobrik was allowed to live in the U.S. … but if he were to leave, he wouldn’t be able to return for a decade.

Finally in possession of the necessary documentation of his citizenship, Dobrik took his friends to visit Slovakia with him. However, when it came time to leave the country, he found himself unable to follow his friends back to Los Angeles.
