On Sept. 5th, the Administration announced its plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Known as DACA, the program protects nearly 800,000 young immigrants, who came as children, from deportation. As of now, the program will end in March, 2018, giving Congress time to take action and protect DACA recipients.

The average DACA recipient is 26. She is our classmate, our neighbor, our coworker, and our friend. She knows no other country as home. We are the most diverse and most educated generation in American history. She is a part of that. There are still a lot of questions, but one thing is clear, eliminating this program without protections for those already enrolled runs counter to everything we stand for as a generation.
