Today, the Trump administration decided to end the DACA program, or so-called "Dreamers Act". This act protects more than 800,000 immigrants that were brought here as babies and children, and are now young adults. DACA has allowed them to be transparent; to work and live legally in the US while giving them a possible path towards full citizenship. Over 90% of Dreamers are employed (others are in school), and 0% have criminal records, as these are criteria of the program. The rescinding of this act now means that 800,000 individuals will lose their ability to work and reside in the US, and are threatened with deportation to their countries of birth, many of which are completely foreign lands to them. The US is all they have ever known; some do not even speak the native language of their countries of origin. It is reprehensible and if you're not disgusted you should check your heart, soul, and morals.
