DACA vs Donald Trump
by Jaiden Van Boorn '21
For those who do not know what DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is, it is a program that President Barack Obama created with an executive order in 2012. The program allows young children who were brought here illegally, and are under the age of 16, to live and work here in the United States. Some of the requirements for DACA are: You had to be under 31 years of age as of June 15, 2012, you had two first come into the United States before your 16th birthday, and you have to have NOT been convicted of a felony.
Our current president, Donald John Trump, is wanting to shut down the program. “I'm here to announce the the program known as DACA that was effectuated under the Obama administration is being rescinded,” Jeff Sessions announced. Sessions also said that there will be “no new applications” for the program that will be accepted’ however, “The administration will allow DACA recipients with a work permit set to expire before March 5, 2018, the opportunity to apply for a two-year renewal.”
