April 10, 2017
Listen to their Story.
Miguel and Yuididt don’t know each other. They happened to be in my car at different timeframes but the issues these two young people and their loved ones are facing are similar.
Miguel is DACA recipient, and you’ve heard about DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The new policy has granted certain undocumented young people who were brought to the U.S. as children a permission to stay, work and study. Miguel’s younger sister, who was born in the States, is a citizen. He reflects on his life and talks about the possibilities his sister has that he lacks.
Yuididt is born and raised American, yet her older brother is not – he is under DACA. She remembers the swift change in her brother’s approach to education and life after receiving DACA.
