DACA, or Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals, the program that allowed certain undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as minors – known as Dreamers – to remain in the country and work or attend school legally, is threatened by President Trump and the Republicans in Congress. Laura Enriquez, Professor of Latino Studies at UC Irvine, explains DACA, and The Dream Act, and how it benefits communities, our society as a whole, and the urgent need to defend this legislation.
