    • There are many people that rely on DACA, so i believe it should be defended as much as possible!

    • DACA is an important program that should be kept, undocumented students rely on this program in order to have a bright future. Their future depends on DACA.

    • DACA is a very important program that helps many undocumented students have equal opportunity, without this program many undocumented students wouldn’t be able to achieve their goals for their future, this program helps and protects them, which is why DACA should be protected at all costs.

    • The DACA program is vital to not only kids’ future but to America’s future since a big portion of America’s population are undocumented people.

    • DACA is a very important program that helps many undocumented people obtain equal opportunities, it helps them to have a chance at a successful career. This program is not only for adults, but it also involves children as well who will be part of the future and I believe that they will make America better, which is why I believe that DACA should be defended as much as possible.

    • The DACA program should not be taken away under any means. This program gives the youth that is undocumented the right to seek out a better life. It’s also an opportunity to thrive and achieve success. If it were to suddenly disappear, so many people would be affected, along with their rights.

    • Dear Allison, I was very impressed with your article about DACA because I also believe that undocumented children have a right to education and employment. DACA allows immigrants to be equal and have an opportunity to have a better life. One sentence that stood out to me was “President Trump and his administration, considered the program to be illegal, has tried for almost two years to shut it down, but lower courts have blocked that effort.” I think this is frustrating because he is trying to remove the only way for these youths to have a life in America. Thank you for writing and I look forward to reading your next article because you state many facts and are knowledgable. I respect that you write about politics.

    • Dear Elizabeth, I was moved by your post, “Defend DACA!” because my older sister is a DACA recipient. I have seen her struggle a lot through the many opportunities that have been denied to her for not being born here, but having DACA has also given her benefits she wouldn’t be able to receive without it. I’m glad to see that she’s been able to graduate college and is now working in a career in criminology. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “This program has helped so many undocumented people in the U.S and it should continue to happen.” I think this is accurate because many dreamers rely on DACA as it gives them a sense of hope knowing that there is something that they can look forward to. Not only current dreamers rely on it, but there are younger generations in which would really benefit from this program too which is why DACA should be defended. Thank you for writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because I enjoyed the context of your post, so I know that your future posts will be as good as this one. I would like to hear about any future changes/improvements on DACA and your thoughts on different topics. -Yamile

    Elizabeth commented on the post, DACA

    This is such an important topic! I come from a family that was immigrated from Mexico. My three oldest sibling currently have DACA and they have benefited so much from it. I really cannot imagine how life would be if Obama never would have presented this program to us. I am currently doing an action plan for my civics class that will try to get…Read More
