Congress Must Protect DACA Recipients from Trump’s Illegal Actions to End DACA
In defiance of the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 2020 order, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), announced in July 2020 that it would not accept new DACA applications while it reviews the legality of the program. This is just the latest attempt by the Trump Administration to end DACA, putting millions of people across the country and thousands in South Carolina at risk for family separation and economic devastation.. It is past time for Congress to step in and pass legislation to protect Dreamers and create a path to citizenship for them.
For more than eight years, the highly successful Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has provided key protections for young American immigrants. DACA was originally created through executive order in 2012 under the Obama Administration, after Congress failed to pass legislation to help those brought to this country without documentation at a young age, also known as Dreamers. DACA allows those eligible/some Dreamers to apply for work authorization and protection from deportation. It also allows for opportunities that many other Americans take for granted, such as getting a drivers’ license and going to college.  
Please take a moment to contact your members of Congress using the form on this page. Remind them how important DACA recipients and Dreamers are to South Carolina and ask them to support legislation that creates a permanent path to citizenship for them. Thank you for your support!
