The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program provides nearly 800,000
undocumented young immigrants with protection from deportation for a period of two years,
subject to renewal.
“Since the Trump Administration’s September 5, 2017 announcement to rescind the DACA
program, there has been a tremendous climate of fear and uncertainty as lawmakers debate a pathway forward for Dreamers,” said Charles Shane Ellison, Deputy Executive Director and
Legal Director of Immigrant Legal Center. “With the looming March 5 deadline—after which
thousands of youth will begin losing their DACA status—now is the time to shine a light on this
injustice and urge people to take action to protect Dreamers.”
