Living the American DREAM Profiles of DACA Recipients
In this compilation, we hear about what life was like before Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and what it has meant for these recipients to receive a work permit and live without the fear of deportation.
They came to the United States in different ways from all over the globe. They settled across the country, but all grew up with a strong desire to do well in school, help their families, and give back to their communities. These youth represent the ways that DACA can be transformative, from granting access to in-state tuition to facilitating higher education, better job opportunities, and driver’s licenses.
