DACA (sometimes called the Dreamers law) allowed people that came to the U.S. illegally as children to stay. Some people say those immigrants should be allowed to stay because they didn’t choose to come to America illegally and have only known America as their homeland. Others say their plight is sad, but the law is the law. Although the DACA program helps a few, this program should be dramatically changed because illegal immigrants can come here and not pay taxes while they get free healthcare and financial aid.
I think that DACA is a good starting point, but that we need something more permanent and robust, including items such as providing an actual path to citizenship. The newest president’s decisions have shown just how temporary DACA is/was for those who have chosen to come out of the shadows with who they are. I think that it is completely wrong to decide that a generation that were brought to America as children, that grew up knowing this country as their home, should be treated so carelessly or as some sort of political sandbag, as one article put it. This program gave so many people a chance to go to college, get a bank account, a driver’s license, a car or home, and generally feel a little more like everyone else.
As it stands, DACA is a program that allows undocumented immigrants to come out of hiding, and helps them to enjoy some of the benefits of US citizens, such as applying for a drivers license, credit card, and work authorization. DACA allows undocumented immigrants who came here as children, to live without fear of deportation. However, not everyone is eligible for DACA, and strict eligibility rules are in place to make sure that the criminals and unproductive people don't get to stay in this country and receive benefits for free. To be eligible for DACA, you must have been brought here before your 16th birthday, born after June 15, 1981, lived here continuously since June 15, 2007, have a minimum of a GED or be enrolled in school, and
Immigrants within the DACA program do pay taxes, the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy estimates the amount paid in taxes by immigrants to be around 2 billion dollars. Being in the DACA program also does not qualify this group of people for the same benefits as citizens. For example, DACA recipients do not qualify for Medicaid or the Affordable Care Act. There should not be worry about the participants benefiting from the U.S. without giving to society. The concerns about crime and violence coming with the recipients of DACA are wrong because the regulations and checks each recipient must follow. Referring to the previous sections where I discussed the regulations, each immigrant wishing to benefit from the program must prove
Immigration policies on DACA can have significant impact on the economy of the United States. DACA protect more than 800,000 dreamers who were brought illegally to United States for temporary work and education. Trump administration has proposed to end DACA. Ending DACA means these children will be sent back to their respective countries. Most of dreamers are studying in colleges or are working and contributing to state and federal government in terms of taxes. Ending DACA could lead to loss of major chunk of GDP. Editor from americanprogress.org named Tom K.Wong wrote in his article “DACA has been
According to Bray (2016), DACA is not sufficient in quantity and quality to meet the demands of every immigrant. Although the act has benefitted countless undocumented immigrants, it does not provide a stable future because it only allows “children that were brought to the U.S. who meet other requirements to apply for two years from deportation (removal), as well a work permit” (294). Nonetheless, the act does not offer long term benefits and like many social policies, it has strict requirements such as; age, education, continuous residence in the U.S. since
DACA is deferred action for childhood arrivals, it’s relief from deportations and work authorizations which is renewed every two years for those brought to America as children illegally. DACA recipients are often called, “dreamers”. Those who fail are eligible for deportation. Trump ended the DACA program leaving millions of undocumented people to lose their privilege in working and going to college to end up deported. Recently in the U.S., President Trump and his administration announced plans that could lead to end of the DACA Program. As part of the wind-down, no new DACA applications will be accepted. Those currently enrolled in DACA can continue working legally until their permits expire. Senior officials said they don’t plan to share
The cancellation of Daca is affecting many young students.They rely on it. Support themselves in the future, and to have good education/jobs, things most people don't have an opportunity of doing. Daca has improved the lives of undocumented people in so many ways. The Daca program protects people that are under the program from being deported. It can also help you get jobs and pursue educational opportunities.
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.
With Trumps decision to end DACA, Congress is now the appropriate forum to address the issues revolving around DACA, because now they have the opportunity to change or remove the policy. But I think the policy should stay in tacked because it will affect thousands of young adults and change, or take away their opportunity’s, they will also put thousands of people of risk of deportation. DACA stand for Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is an immigration policy made by President Obama in 2012. The policy allows children that arrived to the U.S before the age of 16 and had lived here since of June of 2007. When they apply for it, it last for two years and they are eligleble for renewal. As of now there is about 800,000 undocumented immigrants that are protected under DACA. What will be the point of ending something that is giving so many people oppornuty to become something of themselves?
According to CNN, on September 5, US Attorney General Jefferson Sessions gradually terminated Mr. Obama’s policy of “Dreamers”, which is DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and will be completely terminated in six months. This policy was introduced in 2012 to allow illegal immigrants who, under 16 years old enter the United States to apply for two-year repatriation and to allow them to apply for a work permit. As this policy allows renewal, it essentially allows illegal immigrant children to live permanently in the US. Based on DACA benefits for thousands of children, I think the government should keep DACA because terminating the policy and evading nearly a million young people who come to
In September of 2017, the Trump administration made a statement saying that DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) will come to an end, calling the program unconstitutional and criticizing it as "unilateral executive amnesty." DACA is an executive order created by former President Barack Obama, and the program allows hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who came to the United States as a child illegally to remain in the United States. The majority of applicants to DACA cannot have serious criminal history and must have been brought to the US before 2007, under the age of 16. DACA allows for these young people to live and work inside the US legally without risk of deportation. Now, the issue with Trump ending
Besides deferring deportation, DACA provides the holders or “Dreamers” to work and study the United States legally. Those who are eligible for DACA, are not able to take any federal funds, in contrast, they are obligated to pay taxes and provide the United States with their services through profit. Since Donald Trump has shown to be very Anti-immigrant, his decision to end DACA is purely based on his political and personal values, leading to believe he will not approve anything that improves the conditions of immigrants like Bill 3923, regardless of its costs or profits for the United States.
To fully grasp the concept of its benefits, one must understand: What is DACA? DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, and is a three year security from deportation. The program was set in motion in 2012 by President Barack Obama when he signed it on as an executive order. DACA allows undocumented workers, known as Dreamers, to work towards achieving a
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
