Ever since DACA was repealed on September 5th, 2017 DREAMers have been left wondering what happens to them now. Congress has six months to come up with an effective legislative solution. DREAMers fear what that solution may be.
Who Is Affected By Changes To DACA?
DREAMers are immigrants who were brought to the United States before they were sixteen years old. They were either brought here illegally, or on a visa that has since expired. When DACA was enacted, they were granted temporary protection from deportation, along with other rights such as work permits and driver licenses. For many, the United States is the only country they know, which is making many uneasy about what the future holds in store, if they are deported.
