Donald Trump has declared the termination of a initiative to halt the deportation of unrecorded young migrants.
The finale of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was declared by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who made it known that Congress would have 6 months to seek an replacement to the project.
The program, which was introduced in the Obama regime in 2012, accepts people who came in to United States illegally as kids the right to work, study and reside in the country.
Approximately 800,000 people are presently shielded by the DACA project. These young immigrants, who have spent most of their lives in the United States, now encounter an unsure future and the tendency of them being deported.
Juan Escalante, who is fall into this group and campaigning to redeem the DACA program, said to Sky News that he had never been to Venezuela, where he came from, since he moved in to US as a kid.
“I’ve spent the most of my years here,” he said. “I attended school here, I got employed here… the DACA program has greatly enabled me to acquire opportunities to give to communities in the country that I have passion for.”
Mr Escalante stated that he sees himself as an American and that his family had lived many years intending to acquire legal status.
“You can give a try and do the right thing,” he said, “and still find yourself in a state like mine. You may still end up being an undocumented immigrant who encounters deportation.”
