DACA Student Voice on the Election of President Trump

February 24, 2017 - 12:57 pm

The Obama administration signed the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in 2012 to allow undocumented immigrant minors the ability to remain in the US to work or attend school. Recently, the White House announced that they will be issuing a new Executive Order to ban entry by citizens from the same seven Muslim-majority countries again. While restrictions for people entering the US get tighter, people who have lived in the US for most or nearly all of their lives face uncertainties. Here are reflections of a local DACA student on the election of President Trump. KBCS’s Yuko gathered this audio the day after the elections in November.
