DACA Explained: Why it’s vulnerable under the Trump Administration
This afternoon (2/23), RPI Policy Analyst Diana Ali will present a free, live Public Policy Briefing providing an update on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a program implemented during the Obama administration whose future is uncertain now that President Trump has taken office. Diana will provide an update on the current status of DACA along with policy alternatives to continue the protections offered by the program. This post from Director of Policy Research & Advocacy Teri Hinds will serve as a companion to the information presented there, offering a brief overview of the history of DACA as well as possible outcomes for the program following the tightening of immigration enforcement announced earlier this week by the Department of Homeland Security.
We ask our student participants to do a number of things. In addition to conversation and reflection sessions that happen before, during and after the immersion experience, they keep journals. These journals are where they begin to process and connect what they learn and read in class (this immersion experience rests in a Humanities elective course) with the raw reality of the world, and with their own hearts’ desires and calling. With regularity they are asked to share their reflections with the group, sparking communal discussion about our responsibilities as educated global citizens in a world that endures a great deal of pain and injustice.
