DACA has been a controversy since DHS has halted the program. DACA has been utilized by many undocumented individuals who were brought to the states since they were children from deportation. Since Trump came into office, it all changed, he has since stopped new applicants from being able to apply for this program.
DACA is important for many individuals and it gives many opportunities to those children who have been brought to the US since they were young. According to a CBS article, “The order by Judge Paul Grimm of the U.S. District Court in Maryland requires the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to restore DACA to the way it operated before the administration tried to terminate it in the fall of 2017”. This issue has become big and the public still has faith that DACA will go back to being the way it was before Trump came into office. The lives of many children are at stake and they should be taken into consideration and have rights.
