DACA Students: ‘We Want to Be Here, This Is Our Home’

CAP asked students who have received DACA what it would mean for them, their families, and their communities if they were forced to leave the only home they have ever known.

President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program means that nearly 800,000 people will lose their status unless Congress acts. We asked students who have received DACA what it would mean for them, their families, and their communities if they were forced to leave the only home they have ever known.
