The crackdown on immigration puts young people’s lives in limbo

Since 2012, DACA gave deportation protections and work permits to undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and who met other requirements. As DACA was bringing these young people out of the shadows to start school, jobs and families, the Trump-Pence administration decided to end it. That decision makes it harder for many young immigrants to access health care and puts their health in jeopardy.

9 in 10 Americans believe Dreamers should be allowed to stay in the United States.
