7 Nonprofits Fighting for Immigrant Rights
SEPTEMBER 11, 2017
There are nearly 800,000 people protected under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). DACA paved the way for these children of immigrants to obtain work authorization and relief from deportation, enabling them to go on to universities and build careers and families. With the announcement of DACA’s repeal, the program has stopped accepting new applications. For those currently in the program, their work permits and legal status will begin expiring March 2018.
