The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA was established by the Obama administration in 2012. DACA protects dreamers from deportation and gives these dreamers a work permit for 2 years. After the 2 years are up these dreamers can apply for a renewal. But on September 5th it was announced that the program was coming to an end, congress has 6 months to find a legislative alternative. Since then many dreamers have spoken up through protest and social media. The support for these dreamers continues to grow stronger each and every day.
