Potential Impact of the DACA Repeal

The Trump administration recently announced a repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program which shelters young undocumented people who were brought to the U.S. as children, in good standing with the law and who are educated. There are 800,000 of these Dreamers throughout the country and 18,000 of them reside in Washington state.

KBCS’s Yuko Kodama spoke with Community to Community and Detention Watch Network Community organizer and DACA recipient, Jose Manuel Carillo yesterday about how the repeal of the DACA program impacts the national conversation on immigration policy.

DACA Student Voice on the Election of President Trump

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.
