For the past decade, people have been protected under DACA. They are the dreamers or those who get deferred action for childhood arrivals. They are not subject to being deported because they came here as children without a choice. They are also able to get different things that other people who are undocumented do not qualify for. The act was created to help them have a better chance at becoming citizens and because many of them see the United States as the only home they can remember. In fact, most of them don’t even know how to speak the language of the country they originally came from. For those who are unable to qualify for DACA, they either have to move back to that country or stay here illegally which can be challenging and can cause huge problems for the people who want to continue living their lives in the best way possible.
Now, like the Frontera Fund is reporting, most of the people who were living under DACA are going to have to figure out something else to do. Donald Trump has something against DACA and is going to eliminate it. People aren’t going to have a chance to be protected and they will be deported if it comes time for them to renew and they can’t. Trump wants to see them suffer for some reason, and the suffering has already started for those who are worrying about what will happen to them if DACA is wiped off the law.
There are some things they can do, but there is not enough time. If DACA is removed, it will happen quickly. In fact, they really only have until the end of the year to make things right. They may not be considered Americans after that even if they know they are still Americans. Donald Trump wants to ensure they are not going to be able to stay here because he does not support them living here since they are not technically considered citizens of the United States.
DACA users or dreamers will lose many of the things they have under the law. They won’t be able to get in-state tuition prices, they can’t have a driver’s license and they can’t work. In addition, they will be subject to deportation which can cause major harm to the way they are living. The country does not support them and Donald Trump is doing what he can to get rid of them. Even though they are nearly perfect “citizens,” Trump wants to see them out of the country because he thinks they didn’t come here the right way. The problem is that they didn’t have a choice whether or not to come and, if they did, most of them would have come here legally.
