The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is an unqualified success, providing new opportunities and futures for nearly 20,000 Dreamers who live, study, and work in Arizona. They are students, educators, small business owners, healthcare workers, and so many others contributing to their families, communities, and to the country they call home. Yet the future of DACA is under serious threat and could end under President Trump, causing harm to innocent children and devastating families and communities in Arizona. We know many students and educators will be affected by the removal of DACA protections, but are afraid to come forward and share their stories. It's important to tell the real impact ending DACA will have, so we ask that you share your story below.
