DACA is a program that has been in use since 2012, in this past election the new U.S. President Donald trump has announced that daca is officially shut down and dreamers those  protected under DACA will start to lose their protection, and work permits on March 6th, 2018 if congress does not pass it as law.

Many families and young adults have been and will be impacted if daca shuts down. According to the source www.vox.com the “9 facts that explain DACA, the immigration program trump is threatening to end” claims that Most immigrants who came in the united states as “kids” are now probably on their early 20’s or early 30’s and many may lose their work permits. Meaning they can’t follow their dreams, daca has given out so many opportunities and now if daca is shuts down they may not be able to have those opportunities. 790,000 young dreamers will have their futures, their dream jobs, and their protection taken away because of Donald Trump’s and the congress decision.

According to US department of homeland security there is about 37,000,000 legal immigrants in the united states out of approximately 300,000,000 in population. And only 790,000 of them were covered by DACA that may not be that many people who are covered by DACA but there is still 790,000 dreamers who were protected, and are following their dreams 790,000 people are happy with the program. According to president Donald Trump he states he simply wants a solution “where everybody is happy”. How do you feel about this change and/or, does this affect you in any way?
