Growing to talking about Dreamers and DACA,Growing to talking about Dreamers and DACA,

Growing up, my parents always made sure to remind me to respect my elders. “We know what we’re doing,” they said, or my personal favorite, “You shouldn’t question our decisions.” And I never did. I believed wholeheartedly that my parents would always have my best interest in mind, and in consequence, others would too. I trusted the world to take care of me when I was too young to care for myself. Yesterday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the administration is revoking the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.On June 15, 2012, DACA was introduced by the Secretary of Homeland Security, who notified that individuals who came in to the United States as children and meet certain standards set could apply for consideration of deferred action for the duration of two years, pending renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is the, currently restricted, immigration benefit by DHS. It does not give official lawful status, but it is used by people either in removal proceedings, who have final orders of removal, or who have not been yet involved in these proceedings. If the DACA is repealed, around 645,000 individuals would no longer be able to hold on to their legal right to work, leaving them at danger of losing employment as stated by the San Francisco based immigrant Legal Resource Center. To end the employment of all these workers would cost businesses $3.4 billion, estimated the advocacy group. Nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants are in danger of losing protection from deportation following Trump’s decision on the program this Tuesday.When it comes to talking about Dreamers and DACA, Donald Trump, former President of the United States of America, has had something to say every step of the way. From vowing to exterminate the program on the campaign trail, to promising he’d, “deal with DACA with heart,” Trump has endangered the safety of every undocumented immigrant residing in the country in the past twelve hours. But the public is not succumbing, DACA recipients and supporters say they are not going anywhere. Protesters sweep through the streets of Washington and Virginia after the end of immigration protection for DREAMers was announced. The decision to revoke the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals ends a five-year long rescue for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country as children, putting a stop to a time when they felt relief from the fear and worry of being deported and could freely and legally apply for jobs. “I have no second thoughts about ending DACA. The US has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems.” was said by the former President, Donald Trump, earlier on this Tuesday, after arguing that President Obama had abused his authority by protecting thousands of undocumented immigrants from deportation. Donald Trump has never shied away from speaking against the things he doesn’t believe are right, and this is one of them; he truly believes that DACA is against the constitution and needs to be eradicated. After, according to him, much struggle and a very publicly made debate, he has decided to terminate DACA, all of us knowing it was simply because it was created by President Obama. “It seems like his main agenda is just to undo everything Obama did.” said Jimmy Kimmel on his ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ late-night show on Tuesday. Donald Trump is, in his own words, the fix America needed. Elect him and he would rid of all of President Obama’s executive orders. And, since the election, most of his decisions have indeed been driven by his derision for President Obama. The totality of Trump’s election was based on the idea that Barack Obama just doesn’t understand what makes America great, and that if elected, Trump would undo all the un-patriotic things Obama did while in office. If Trump was ever indecisive about what to do, the program’s affiliation with Barack Obama was probably the stone tipping the scale to its demise. It would seem almost like Donald Trump has his own personal agenda, and is running this country solely based on personal decisions, rather than thinking about the people he’s supposed to govern. In conclusion, there is more to this story than what meets the eye. There is heartbreak and fear and the acceptance that everything might not be alright, after all. Corrupt politicians and misplaced enmity is driving America apart. At the beginning of this election we promised, not only to ourselves, but to others, that we would, under no circumstance, allow Trump to get away with the things he was planning to accomplish, when in reality we already had. It is not up to us, the children, to make America great, but to the adults in this country to pave the way for us. How are we supposed to bring America forward when it has decided to set us back? How can I protect those the law is set on destroying? I believed adult would protect us when I myself could not, but how can I trust anything they say when they’ve attempted to silence me every step of the way.
