Jeff Sessions has announced that the Trump administration plans to rescind DACA, a program found under the Obama administration, which protects 800,000 undocumented children and young adults from deportation.
As a result of ending DACA, 800,000 young immigrants who depend on the program will no longer have access to higher education education, be able to pay bills, get a job, and contribute to the U.S. economy. As all DACA recipients have a clean-record, ending the program is an immoral act that holds no economic benefits for the United States. It is done on the basis of American white supremacy and racism.
