The United States courts are deciding if the DACA program will stay in place or if the immigrants that came here as children will still be allowed to stay here as citizens. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a kind of administrative relief from deportation. The purpose of DACA is to protect eligible immigrant youth who came to the United States when they were children from deportation. DACA gives young undocumented immigrants: 1) protection from deportation, and 2) a work permit. The program expires after two years, subject to renewal. “I created this poster in support of those fighting to keep these rights, to fight for those who want to call America their home” tell us Mary Anne.
