This article is about the Lacey and Larkin frontier fund, it will also information about DACA as well. GOP extremist members started many fronts of attack over the program of DACA. This altering news is skipping it’s shot across the networks and organizations of young immigrants.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA helps undocumented youth. This is to those who meet some essentials: a social security number, the opportunity to work in the United States for a renewable two-year period, and reprieve from deportation. The program is allowing then to access in-state-tuition fees and an acquiring of a driver’s license.
But, something then happened on September 5th 2017. Earlier, the President of the United States Donald Trump’s administration got a letter from Ken Paxton the Texas Attorney to repeal the DACA program by that date September 5th. This would threaten legal action on the demands met or not. The action wouldn’t be a sudden termination. However, a “Phasing off” is in consideration where new applications won’t be thought of and no renewals would be given. The result was one governor and nine attorney generals of red states putting their names on the letter.
Currently, the program of DACA is in year five of implementation and has been bringing clear benefits to the United States. So far, a percentage of ninety-five either study, work or do both. They give million of dollars to universities and colleges nationwide. This has helped with paying higher taxes and earnings. The economic gains made by individuals of DACA are invested in furthering their education, making new businesses, and purchasing cars and homes. During these tough times the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund will give assistance, information, and guidance in the fight to save DACA and fight for a solution which lasts, called A DREAM Act legislation.
It is also important to note that the Center for American Progress had reported some crucial information. This is that 8,508 people as of November 9, 2017 have lost DACA. This is at a rate amounting to 122 each day. This rate will keep on going until Monday March 5. 2017. The number will continue to go up to 30,000 per month or 1,000 each day. This is unless Congress gets the courage to act and looks for a solution for about 800,000 DREAMers in the United States.
Now some more general information about DACA. The main goal of DACA is a type of administrative reassurance from deportation. What they try to do is to secure eligible immigrant youth who arrived to the United States. This is when they were originally children from deportation.
