Deportation of Undocumented Persons and DACA Beneficiaries Could Crash this Country


Dina Francesca Haynes addresses the devastating impacts of the elimination of President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program:

"President Elect Trump has indicated, in his 100–day plan, that he would, on his first day in office, invalidate all unconstitutional Executive Orders issued by President Obama. Those of us who work in the immigration and constitutional law fields understand this to mean that in January, among other actions, approximately one million young people here pursuant to Executive Action and currently in high school, college, or the military, or who have recently completed one of these, will become deportable."

The prospect of the end of DACA has generated great fear, if not panic, in immigrant communities.  Time will tell how President Trump moves forward.
