There are many young undocumented students in the U.S with an unknown future. Since, two thousand twelve many republicans have been against the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program without knowing the risk the DACA students would be in. Many citizens are unaware that the program was designed to protect young undocumented students temporarily. Nevertheless, if the DACA program would ever be in jeopardy of being outlawed it would affect a lot of undocumented students. First, it would have a negative impact towards a lot of undocumented families because they depend on their children that are recipients. Seconds, without the DACA program the undocumented students are in danger of being deported to their birth country they have never been too. Third, many dreamers would lose various job opportunities to work legally in the U.S.
A social issue that is currently whirling around the United States is the discussion of what is going to happen with DACA recipients. DACA stands for The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and they are also commonly referred to as “Dreamers” (Michelle Mark 2017). The DACA act was set in place in 2012 by President Barrack Obama and it provided young immigrants the chance to apply for temporary protection from deportation. Often times children are too young to know what is going on and their parents bring them into the United States so they are then protected under the DACA act. It is also only eligible to immigrants who have been in the United States since 2007 and were under 16 years of age; 30 or younger as of June 2012, in high school or have a diploma or GED and a clean criminal record (Dara Lind 2017). The program does not grant legal status, put them on a path to citizenship and or legalization (Michelle Mark 2017). The protection does allow these people to get authorization to work and obtain a valid driver’s license in some states. DACA provides the opportunity for them to have the chance to further their education, buy cars, homes and even the possibility of starting a business (Dara Lind 2017). Currently 800, 000 people depend on the DACA Act in the United States (Michelle Mark). Without the DACA Act, the recipients are essentially an illegal immigrant.
DACA was created by the Obama administration in June of 2012 with the vision to relief deportation and giving protection to foreign minors who entered the country illegally so that they could stay, work and get education without being deported to their country of origin. DACA has been entitling to controversy and uncertainty since the Trump administration because this action provides the recipients the opportunity to receive a two year renewable deferral of deportation, a work permit and benefits provided by the government. This action has been rescind by the President Donald Trump on September of 2017; more than 800,000 recipients (known as DREAMers) are left with concerns, worriers and fears of being deported to their country of birth because their families, education, friends and life is here in The United States.
To keep with being an educated citizen of the United States, I did some research so I could properly inform myself on the issues with DACA, or the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals”. I had no idea what this program was before writing this reflection. DACA was put into place by former President Barack Obama through an executive order. It provides young immigrants, those who came to the United States as minors, with protection from immediate deportation. It has been available for any immigrant minors under sixteen years of age for nearly ten years. Each two-year period can be renewed. Those who receive support from DACA cannot have a criminal record, according to an article from Fox News. DACA is a support program for young immigrants, also called DREAMers, in the United States.
Watching them work hard and struggle instilled in me a strong work ethic and the desire to become successful. Years later, I was granted the opportunity to pursue my dream of receiving an education with DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), which grants any immigrant who came into the U.S. before 2007, a work permit and exemption from deportation. Being a DACA student I have limited resources; limitations that have not shun my voice, but in fact have given me one. I earned the chance to attend the New Jersey Scholars Program, a competitive academic summer program designed for the top thirty-nine high school students in the state. This program was an eye-opening experience, which further ignited my passion for a higher education. Although the program provided me with a glimpse to my future, I was still faced with the reality that undocumented immigrant families encounter on a daily
comprehensive immigration reform could bring to this country, to the native- born and immigrants workers as well. Also, he makes emphasis in how the number of undocumented immigrants has increased since 1990’s; therefore, the economy of United States has dramatically increased.
The Development Relief and Education for Alien Minors, more commonly known as it’s acronym, The Dream Act, is a parliamentary proposition to allow illegal aliens and their children to have the option of continuing their education into college. There are some differentiating opinions of this proposition. According to Yeh Ling-Ling, the main reason for Congress not supporting this bill is due to the lack of funding which will only increase the nation’s debt. With this being said, the students attending college through financial aid will be able to repay the debt they once claimed. It’s designed mainly for the people who have graduated high school or obtained a GED in America, but due to the immigration laws are unable to attend College or a higher academic setting.
I do not think the recession of DACA will be beneficial to American Society. Many of the DACA recipients are highly qualified for the jobs they have, however many of them achieving their bachelor’s degree. Since becoming a recipient, it has allowed them to be able to receive their driver’s license, open a bank account, and even be able to buy a home. There is over 790,000 DACA recipients with the most being in California and Texas, if they are forced to leave, it could affect the economy in a negative way in these states and much more.
DACA is federal government program created in 2012 former president Barack Obama. Nearly 800,000 young adults are now protected by this program. To request DACA, they must have lived in the U.S since June 15, 2007, until present, came to the U.S before 16th birthday, must be currently in school or have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from High school (https://www.uscis.gov/archive/consideration-deferred-action-childhood-arrivals-daca). This program has given the opportunity to live without fear and those who are approved by it are given a work permit, a valid license, they will be able to enroll in college and protection from deportation for two years. After those two years this
About 400,000 illegal immigrants come to the United States each year, each one with their own story and reasons. These illegal immigrants often have sorrowful stories that make you want to sympathize with them, but these immigrants never think about how their presence affects the United States. On September 5th, “President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the end of the DACA program; they contended that undocumented immigrants took economic opportunities away from citizens and lawful permanent residents” (DREAM). The DACA program was created in 2012 by President Obama and allowed illegal immigrants to stay in the United States. Recently, President Trump ended the program, but gave Congress a window to formulate a better plan
Many of the undocumented students were brought to the United States at a very young age, not by their choice but of their parents. With great potential and willingness to succeed, many do not have the same opportunities as those of their peers. Millions of students have filed their deferred act in hope of getting an opportunity

Republicans say they are imposing towards the Affordable Care Act because of further many costs on the business, that most republicans are describing it as a "job killer". 32 million were insured will have to buy health insurance or even have to face a fine and those who cannot afford it are going to be subsided by the government.

Many people from different countries come to the US illegally. Most immigrants come here legally, and some others come the illegal way. This could be staying after visa expires, crossing the border etc. Some get caught in the process of entering the US illegally while others make it and stay living here without documentation. Many people believe that they should not be allowed to stay and here illegally because they are, to them, criminals. Others believe that they do a lot of good to this country and argue that they should be allowed to stay and legalize some of them. Throughout this paper we will discuss the pros and cons of keeping or deporting illegal immigrants and weather it is beneficial
