Daca (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) was an American policy that would allow individuals that came as little kids to a country illegally and stayed illegally and they would have a 2 year period from being deported. This policy has helped a lot of immigrant children to stay here and create a better life for themselves. Daca has changed kids future because they are willing to work and focus on good things instead of the bad things.

DACA has become a controversy with Donald Trump because he doesn’t want immigrant young adults to be able to work. Trump has a great belief that immigrant children and their parents don’t deserve to be in the United States. The repeal of DACA is going to make the lives of 800,000 immigrants so much harder than it already is. The DACA program has given immigrants the opportunity to change their lives for the better. How will revoking this policy change our country? It makes you wonder about what changes might come towards us.

Trump is still working on making more changes. As Trump says,” “We’re working on a plan for DACA,” Mr. Trump told reporters, referring to protections for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, as he prepared to leave the White House for Florida. He added, “The wall will come later.” (NYT) We all have to prepare for everything that is yet to come our way. He is ready to make all these changes but the biggest drawback for us is going to be that opportunities will be wasted and jobs will be have no workers.

Last night October 8,2017 Trump said that he will not help DREAMERS unless congress agrees to pay and build the whole wall. “Trump’s list of demands included overhauling the country’s green-card system, a crackdown on unaccompanied minors entering the country, and building his promised wall along the southern border.”(abcnews) Trump wants to have as much restrictions as possible. The decisions that Trump takes changes the lives of many people that want to be a better version of themselves and they also want the whole United States to be a better place but other people think that it isn’t right for the people who have a dream ,that have been here in the United States since they were kids.

Overall DACA has been a big controversy between Trump and and people who were in it. A lot of changes are going to be made to make the United States “better”, yet Trump doesn’t think about the future of these people. Everyone who supports DACA wants to be able to speak their mind and come to a better conclusion on this matter.
