Don't Forget About DACA

Although it has slipped from the headlines in the past few months, immigration lawyers and more importantly, the hundreds of thousands of recipients, have not forgotten about President Trump’s termination of DACA last year and Congress’ failed efforts to save it. For the the time being, DACA’s end was put on hold by a federal judge, but it is still up to Congress to find a more permanent solution. This solution MUST include a path to citizenship. Dreamers are contributing members of American society. For most of them, this is the only country they have ever known. While other immigration issues continue to be raised and Congress introduces other types of legislation, we all must keep DACA at the front of our minds and urge lawmakers to do the right thing when it comes to helping the Dreamers.
