NEW❗️on #DACA from @claudsDC @NSvajlenka highlights the critical role that the program continues to play for hundreds of thousands of #Dreamers, their families, and our communities. #HeretoStay #WeAreHome 🧵
Read the stories of #DACA recipients here 👉🏻americanprogress.org/issues/immigra…
Any day now, a federal judge in #Texas will rule on #DACA, a policy that allows certain young immigrants who arrived to the U.S. as children to access a renewable, 2-yr work permit and a reprieve from deportation. maldef.org/2021/03/texas-… @MALDEF
#DACA has allowed recipients to put their skills and abilities to full use, giving them a greater sense of stability. More than 83% of previously surveyed DACA recipients reported that increased earnings has helped them become “financially independent.”

1/As our violently flawed and racist policing system continues to plague Black & brown communities from coast to coast, it’s clear that so many of the laws currently in place do nothing to protect us. And in a few weeks, @DHSgov will release new “enforcement” policies. #EyesonICE
2/These policies will determine every arrest, detention, & deportation that ICE and CBP execute over the next few years, and will have life-or-death impacts on immigrant communities across the country.

These harms must END. #EyesonICE
3/The Biden Administration STILL uses criminal convictions as the basis for its temporary deportation policy, even as the inherent racism of policing is exposed over and over again.

There are just a few weeks left to change that. #EyesonICE
