Not long ago, President Donald Trump rescinded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or commonly known as DACA. This executive action was created by previous President Obama to give young undocumented minors protection from deportation on the grounds that they were taken to the United States when they were children. The basis is that these young adults should not be deported back to their original countries because they did not have a choice to come to the United States but were forced to come here illegally. This issue is polarizing in Washington with people loving the decision or hating the decision. Republican states have threatened to sue the administration if action was not taken to stop DACA.
Many people believe that President Trump rescinding DACA is a very bad decision. One organization that has shown how negative of a decision the President has made is Frontera Fund. This organization is focused on helping the public and politicians see all the good things DACA does. It also is focused on working towards a final solution to this issue: a DREAMer piece of legislation created by Congress to cement DACA into the future, taking away the fear of hundreds of undocumented young adults looking for a solid future in their home.
THe future of DACA is unclear, with many sides fighting for their own vision of the future. One side wants every person protected with DACA deported. Another side wants Congress to act. Finally having a law created by Congress put into effect would end much of the legal issues originally brought up by DACA. Many organizations want this side to win including the Frontera Fund. The fight for DACA is far from finished with the fight aiming to last for years, but one thing is for sure: that people will not stop fighting to make sure people that deserve to be protected are.
