DACA has allowed thousands of LGBT immigrants improve their economic security and pursue higher education. They could lose protection under President Trump’s elimination of the program and risk being deported to countries where their lives are at risk.
The Trump administration’s decision to end DACA is the latest assault on immigrants—casting them as undeserving of basic rights and undermining their ability to achieve economic stability; parent with dignity; and live healthy, productive lives.

Immigration policies that target the parents of U.S. citizens have profound consequences for children’s development, and for the economy.
A new threat to DACA could cost the federal government $460.3 billion in lost GDP over the next decade and individual states billions of dollars in lost GDP annually.

U.S.-based refugees face several threats due to policies proposed by the Trump administration. Not only is their ability to settle free from stigma on the chopping block, but access to comprehensive reproductive health care is also at risk.
Federal judges have put the brakes on many of Trump’s dangerous policies, but the president has the potential to appoint more than 100 judges who will rubber-stamp his agenda.
The Department of Homeland Security’s supervision and monitoring programs are often an extension of a punitive immigration system that puts corporate profits over migrants’ lives.
