DREAM ACT 2017 (DACA)
In 2012, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) was created by President Obama as an Executive Order to immediately assist children who were born in another country and immigrated to the United States illegally. September 5, 2017, President Donald Trump announced he is ending DACA (Dream Act) and handing off the debate to Congress. This decision has been a long time coming. However Trump has put an expiration date on it, not to push people out of the United States (which many see as home) but to legitimize a law with congress. We now need to act accordingly by building off of the original platform that President Obama's administration created and adapt it to new immigration law. Doing so will strengthen our economy, strengthen our military, strengthen our families and strengthen our country.
