Have Some Humanity, Give DACA a Fighting Chance

DACA has been buzzing with some terrible news; the whole program is at stake. Some members of the GOP have urgently requested that this program is forced to stop. Their arguments against this program will end any light of a real life for these undocumented individuals. DACA which stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival specializes in providing a plethora of opportunities for people, that prohibits them from being deported. Also, the program provides employment prospects, education, and a driver’s license as well.

The Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton requested from the Trump administration to repeal DACA program by September 5. Executing this program will not be done so quickly, it will slowly die down through the months, making it irrevocable for future individuals to apply towards the program. Honestly, establishing the DACA program has been beneficial for the country; a majority of the recipients have provided funds to universities while showing an enhancement in their income. The program has proven to be effective and efficient, not just for the patrons but the economy as well.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are journalists, who co-founded the Frontera Fund which has been initiated to defend and fund people who express the First Amendment and who struggles with political, personal, and immigrant civil liberties in the state of Arizona. Advocates for the DACA program, there are persistent in making sure that their voices are heard. DACA was created for the youth who enter this country as a child, for it protects them from being deported. The Obama Administration established this in 2012, now five years later the Trump administration was it completely eradicated by March of 2018. This has caused controversy and is in dire need of being resolved. The great thing is that the DACA program with the help of the Frontera Fund will not go down without a fight.
