DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, has allowed for nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrant youth who were brought to the United States as children to obtain work permits, attend school, and contribute openly to our economy without fear of deportation. In many cases, these youth grew up in the United States and want to give back to society and raise their own families in the only nation they know as home.
President Trump is expected to make an announcement on September 5, 2017, about whether to terminate or phase out the program that provides protection from deportation.
It is urgent that President Trump and your members of Congress hear from you today about the importance of protecting these youth from deportation or detention.
