For Students with Deferred Action Status, Optimism and Frustration

For Students with Deferred Action Status, Optimism and Frustration

It has been about a year and a half since President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) process was announced back on June 15, 2012 and went into effect a few months later on August 15. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have been provided relief as a result, but questions remain on what the future holds for undocumented immigrants.
