The GOP extremist members have managed to launch a number of fronts of attacks against DACA program. The alarming news is currently ricocheting cross networks and organizations of young immigrants. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) offers undocumented youth with some prerequisites a reprieve from social security number, deportation as well as the chance to work in the United States for a period that is renewable of 2 years. Mostly, the program enables them to get an access to in-state-tuition fees and driver’s license. Ken Paxton who is the Texas Attorney General released a letter which addressed the Trump administration requesting them to cancel the DACA program.
The letter asked the Trump administration to annul the DACA program by September 5th and also threatened to take legal action incase their demands were not met. They stated that the action to take will be a phasing off whereby there will be no consideration of new applications as well as no renewals and not an abrupt termination. The letter contained names of one governor and nine attorneys general of red states. Just recently, the Hispanic Caucus’ members met in a closed-door meeting with John Kelly who is the secretary of Homeland Security. Kelly said that the program which is known to protect 800,000 individuals is now in jeopardy.
In its 5th year of implementation, the DACA program has brought many clear benefits to the United States. Ninety five percent of all DACA beneficiaries normally study or work. Together they contribute million o dollars to universities and colleges all over the country. They pay higher taxes and have managed to improve their earnings. Majority of the economic gains that have been made by the DACA people are invested in buying cars, home creating businesses as well as advancing their education. There are several studies that proof the fact that the program of DACA has been a success.
