DACA was first conceptualized by the administration of the Obama government. The intention of the Dreamers act of in full the Deferred action for childhood arrivals was a way of protecting migrant children who had been brought to the United States at a tender age by there parents and were now in the later years of there lives where they had already acquired the education in the country but now found themselves in a situation where they could not be legally employed as they lacked the required papers. This was due to the fact that even despite living almost all their lives in the country they were by law illegal immigrants and as such treated as persons who had no legal right to be in the country.
The dreamers as they are commonly referred to have been some of the most outstanding citizens in the country with most of them holding a college education serving in the military and over ninety-five percent are employed and are contributing more than a billion dollars to the country in terms of taxes.
The need to protect dreamers has never been more agent than now when the state of there legality in the country is being put into question daily. One of the strongest opponents of the dreamer’s act is the current Texas attorney general who threatened to move to court to fight for the annulment of the dreamer’s act. He was later joined by other Republican-led states who were also threatening to take action against the dreamer’s act.
The understanding of the dreamer’s act has been elusive to most of them and this is one of the aspects that the Frontera fund wishes to bring up. The Frontera fund has worked with various migrants especially those of Hispanic descent they have a very good understanding of what this act means to those it represents to them it’s more than acts and numbers but rather putting faces to this act.
The Frontera fund continues to fight for the continuation of the act and is lobbying hard for more to be done to protect dreamers as well as pass laws that make their status permanent.
