AMER­I­CAN DREAM­ERS

Vocable (All English) - - Le Dessin -

Last month, Pres­i­dent Trump an­nounced his de­ci­sion to end the De­ferred Ac­tion for Child­hood Ar­rivals pol­icy (DACA). This pro­gram gives tem­po­rary im­mi­gra­tion sta­tus to peo­ple who were brought to the United States il­le­gally as chil­dren. It al­lows them to live, study and work legally in Amer­ica with­out fear of de­por­ta­tion. 800,000 peo­ple, known as the “Dream­ers”, are cur­rently pro­tected un­der DACA. Most of them are from Mex­ico, El Sal­vador, Gu­atemala and Hon­duras and range in age from 15 to 36, ac­cord­ing to the White House. Don­ald Trump has now put their fate in the hands of Congress, ask­ing its mem­bers to come up with a so­lu­tion to re­place the pro­gram within six months. Fol­low­ing the de­ci­sion, thou­sands of Dream­ers took to the streets in protest as they are now fac­ing an un­cer­tain fu­ture.
