About "DACA Fix"
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals was a program started by Pres. Obama without Congressional approval that was intended to manage the problem of illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children, through no fault of their own. It enabled them temporarily to legally work in the U.S. and be protected from deportation. These immigrants for the most part have no other experience than life in the U.S. and have been raised here most of their lives. Unfortunately, by bypassing Congress, the temporary protections afforded to them by Obama are not on a sure legal foundation and are being challenged by Pres. Trump and Congress today. Pres. Trump allowed DACA to expire in March, 2018, but a federal court extended them. No one knows how long the extension will last or whether another federal court will overrule the extension. (In fact, you should research this carefully before running this case, since it can change at any time). Everyone believes some kind of resolution is needed because the DACA recipients (also known as “Dreamers”) need to order their lives based on some kind of legal certainty. They need to either be told that they will be deported or be given a pathway to legalization and citizenship. This plan argues that the best solution for our country and for the Dreamers is to give law-abiding Dreamers legal protections and a pathway to citizenship, grounded in clear legislation passed by Congress.
